A registered Canadian charity, the Joy Smith Foundation is Canada’s leading authority on the prevention and intervention of human trafficking. We also provide support for survivors of this horrific crime.
It’s a responsibility we take seriously. Since 2012, we have helped more than 7,000 human trafficking survivors and their families to restore their lives by reuniting, healing and integrating victims back into their communities
National Human Trafficking Education Centre
In 2021, the Foundation evolved with the introduction of the National Human Trafficking Education Centre. NHTEC provides education and tools to help Canadians across the country learn to recognize the signs of human trafficking to prevent this crime from occurring.
We offer a wide variety of programs for individuals such as parents, teachers and youth, as well as professionals who work with survivors including webinars, in person seminars, virtual training and more.
