Family members are increasingly involved in the domestic human trafficking of aboriginal women and girls for the purposes of sexual exploitation, according to Public Safety Canada.The assessment appears in a tender for research into trends and issues in the trafficking of aboriginal women and girls. It says the involvement of both family members and criminal organizations is an emerging trend that “appears to be a significant complicating factor” in their exploitation.

The research is intended to increase understanding of the trafficking of aboriginal women and girls in Canada. It will include at least 70 discussions with people who provide services to trafficked aboriginal women and girls or vulnerable communities, those who have studied the issue and people investigating or prosecuting crimes involving trafficked female aboriginals.


Public Safety wants the researchers to describe the extent and situations in which family members are involved in victimizing their relatives, clarify the relationship between human trafficking and domestic violence, and outline how gangs and criminal organizations are involved, with a focus on the trafficking of family members.


Experts agreed Monday that family members are involved in the trafficking of their own relatives in Canada, though it remains relatively uncommon.
