OCRCC Statement – Bill 251 – Combat Human Trafficking Act

OCRCC has significant concerns about Bill 251, Combating Human Trafficking Act, 2021. While the stated intent of Bill 251 is to combat human trafficking and provide support for survivors, a close examination of the bill conveys a largely criminal justice understanding of human trafficking only.

This limits community-based solutions, including options for those who have experienced trafficking. In addition, Bill 251 opens up expanded police authority that will, in turn, create new challenges for trafficked persons as well as others in our communities.
