Notice Description

  Research: Trafficking of Aboriginal Women and Girls: Trends and Issues

Requirement Summary


Aboriginal women and girls in Canada have been identified a vulnerable population at risk of falling victim to human trafficking for the purposes of sexual exploitation. Until only a few years ago, the types of acts perpetrated against them were often not even viewed as "trafficking" (Sikka 2009).

In more recent years there has been heighted sensitivity to the domestic trafficking of Aboriginal women and girls (RCMP 2012). An emerging trend which appears to be a significant complicating factor in cases of domestic human trafficking involving Aboriginal women and girls is the involvement of both family members and criminal organizations (including gangs) in their victimization.

Research in other parts of the world, such as Mexico (Zhang 2011), has also observed that the rural to urban migration of poor indigenous women can involve their being trafficked into the sex industry by their relatives.

Stakeholders have indicated that, to date, the majority of the cases and most attention directed at this issue has focused on the Western region of Canada.


The objective of this project is to augment what is currently known about the trafficking of Aboriginal women and girls in Canada by engaging with service providers and other relevant stakeholders who work with communities vulnerable to this specific type of victimization, particularly concentrating on the situation in Central and Eastern Canada, as well as the North.

The project will include sections that focus on: (a) describing the extent and situations in which family members are involved in victimizing their relatives; (b) clarifying the mechanisms by which human trafficking and domestic violence are related to one another, particularly in the context of family trafficking; and (c) outlining how gangs and criminal organizations are involved in trafficking, with a focus on the trafficking of family members.
