A national hotline to help victims and survivors of human trafficking is now taking calls, with the organization behind the service saying it hoped the new resource would also fill crucial gaps in public knowledge about the issue.
In addition to connecting victims and survivors with community resources and enlisting law enforcement on prospective cases, the line will help close a critical knowledge gap by collecting data on the prevalence of human trafficking.
The toll-free hotline will be available 24 hours a day throughout the year. Call takers will be able to field queries in more than 200 languages, including a number of Indigenous languages. The new hotline can be reached 24 hours a day at: 1-833-900-1010
