In rough terms, human smuggling is taking a person across an international border for money. Human trafficking is controlling and exploiting people for someone else’s profit when they get to their destination,” said  OPP Const. Mark Dew, of Sarnia-Lambton Crime Stoppers in Canada.

That is the international definition. He said there is also domestic trafficking, referring to a victim trafficked within Canada.

Dew said traffickers use various methods to control their victims, including force, sexual assault and threats of violence. He also said  that human trafficking  is the third largest profit maker for organized crime, behind illegal drugs and gun sales.

Victims of human trafficking in Canada are often involved in the sex trade.

So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!But yeah Thank you for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and enjoy learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is extremely helpful for me.
