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.
- Advocating for a national inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
