CARE, EDUCATION, AND COLLABORATION
ACT provides trauma-informed, evidence-based, and person-centered care for our clients. Human trafficking is a human rights abuse that can affect women, men, trans and non-binary individuals, and children right here in Alberta.
We educate our community on how to identify and respond to human trafficking, foster our vast network of collaborators that enable us to get our clients the help they need, and spearhead vital research and policy development across the province.
WHO WE ARE
Since our first case in 2008, we have delivered direct services to thousands of people in need. We are accredited social workers, advocates, and educators who work tirelessly toward our vision of an Alberta free of human trafficking.
Our vision is an Alberta free of human trafficking.
We will increase knowledge and awareness on human trafficking, advocate for effective rights-based responses, build capacity of all involved stakeholders, and lead and foster collaboration for joint action against human trafficking.
