The Joy Smith Foundation’s mission statement is to “work to ensure that every Canadian man, woman and child is safe from manipulation, force, or abuse of power designed to lure and exploit them into the sex trade or forced labour”.
Our team was pleased to be invited by Joy Smith to a Foundation breakfast at the Fort Garry Hotel on April 28, 2016 featuring The Honorable Peter MacKay.
Over breakfast we listened to leaders in anti-human trafficking advocacy speak about this horrendous crime that “reaches all elements of our society”. We also heard the compelling story of how one brave young woman turned her life around and is now a survivor of human trafficking with the help of The Joy Smith Foundation.
