In November 2017 the Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking and members of Project Protect appealed to the finance industry for assistance in addressing the financial fraud and debt burden survivors of human trafficking face as a result of their commercial sexual exploitation..
Canadian lenders, business leaders and advocates worked to understand the complex aspects of trafficking as related to fraud and financial coercion. In November 2019 Project Recover, led by volunteer financial service industry executives implemented program to assist survivors in addressing the credit issues they face resulting from their trafficking exploitation
In just a few months we have successfully worked with many Canadian companies on behalf of survivors to design a process that protects and resolves the issues they face while ensuring they are not re-victimized.
Project Recover would like to acknowledge the Canadian Centre to End Human Trafficking for their ongoing assistance. Their relentless effort and commitment to helping victims and survivors of human trafficking have been instrumental in providing a solution to this issue.
