PROTECTION AND HELP FOR VICTIMS  OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING

If you think that you are a victim of human trafficking, or you suspect or know of human  trafficking activity, call 9-1-1 or your local police. To anonymously report a case of  trafficking, call Crime Stoppers National Tipline at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).

The Government of Canada can help you if you are a victim of human trafficking  by giving you a special temporary resident permit. This will allow you to receive health  care and to apply for an open work permit. You will not need to testify against your  trafficker or pay a fee to receive this help. You can contact the closest Immigration,  Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) office or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police  (RCMP). To find the closest IRCC office, call IRCC toll-free at 1-888-242-2100 (from  within Canada only). If you visit an office in person, IRCC can assess your application  faster.

To find the closest RCMP detachment for human trafficking, call the Royal  Canadian Mounted Police Human Trafficking National Coordination Centre  toll-free at 1-855-850-4640.
