Alberta creates anti-human trafficking task force
Alberta has appointed an anti-human trafficking task force to help the province fight human trafficking and assist survivors.
On Tuesday, Premier Jason Kenney announced the creation of the Human Trafficking Task Force, which will provide the government with recommendations on supporting survivors and implementing the nine-point action plan.
"Alberta should be a place where people can live safely, free from exploitation and coercion. Sadly, human trafficking exists in our province, and it is our duty to bring these human rights violations to light and do more to protect those at risk," Kenney said.
"This provincial Human Trafficking Task Force brings together knowledgeable and dedicated individuals to provide advice on protecting and empowering some of Alberta's most vulnerable."
