Anglican Church of Canada

The Anglican Church of Canada is working to end human trafficking and modern slavery in Canada and globally in partnership with faith-based, civil society, and government partners in Canada, and with the Anglican Communion and global ecumenical organizations.

Canadian Anglican involvement locally, involving parishes, dioceses, Mission to Seafarers, the Anglican Military Ordinariate, General Synod and others is currently not well known within the Church. Most church members are not aware of:

  • The extent or nature of human trafficking and modern slavery in our neighbourhoods, towns and cities.
  • Ministries of local parishes with and for vulnerable and trafficked peoples.
  • Efforts in the public square to stop this egregious harm.

Our work ahead

More than 60 Anglican leaders are working in local parishes and communities to raise awareness about human trafficking and modern slavery. These church members come from almost every diocese from coast to coast to coast. Their ministry is informed by local realities and needs, and by the recent General Synod 2019 Resolution A204 Human Trafficking and Modern slavery.
