Fighting Human Trafficking
Removing Foreign Criminals from Canada

National news in Canada: Posted: July 22, 2014
Canada Fights Human Trafficking

In 2012, the Canadian Government introduced the Faster Removal of Foreign Criminals Act to speed up the removal of foreign criminals from Canada. Today, we are seeing positive action as a result of such tough on crime measures.

On July 22, 2014, the Government announced the removal from Canada of 20 members of a human trafficking criminal organization.

This criminal ring, which operated in the Hamilton area, recruited their victims from Hungary with promises of a better life. The victims were then forced to work illegally, live in disgusting conditions without enough food and were intimidated and attacked repeatedly.

22 members of this criminal organization have been convicted of crimes relating to human trafficking and 20 of these individuals have been deported from Canada.

'We are sending a clear signal that there is no room in Canada for those who are committing the heinous and despicable crime of human trafficking.'

 Steven Blaney, Public Safety Minister

Our message to foreign criminals is clear: Your presence in Canada will not be tolerated.
