Last May, the Government of Ontario announced the launch of a new pilot program which assists human trafficking survivors by providing free legal supports. This is an incredible step towards recovery for survivors.

The Ministry of the Attorney General created a team of specialized lawyers that will provide free legal supports including, confidential legal advice, help with completing a restraining order, and representation at application hearings in any Ontario Court of Justice. *Parents and guardians of child survivors are also eligible to receive free legal support.

What are your thoughts about this initiative? A step in the right direction or is there more that needs to be done?
