Support services for trafficked persons

The FCJ Refugee Centre offers direct services to people who have been trafficked, taking into account the range of supports needed. Walking with survivors through legal processes, immigration procedures, settlement and recovery, we take a holistic approach to ensure people are informed and empowered to steer their own course out of the trafficking experience.

We ensure trafficked persons have access to orientation, legal assistance and referrals, information about their immigration options, appropriate housing, employment support, counseling and other forms of psycho-social support. The path out of human trafficking may take time, and we ensure that we walk with people the whole way.

COVID-19 Update

During this difficult time we continue to work in solidarity with precarious migrants. The Anti-Human Trafficking and Migrant Workers Mobile Program is working online and by phone. We are providing to Migrant Workers remote services, doing referrals, presenting cases to immigration and other authorities, and creating public awareness on human trafficking, particularly on international cases and labour exploitation.

We have a strong team which speaks different languages. If you need to talk about any form of exploitation please contact us at our office: 416-469-9754, or at our WhatsApp phone: 647-9712153.

Migrant workers still coming to Canada and the situation for non status migrants is more challenging this time due to isolation, which increases exploitation and abuse.
