This website is designed to be a one-stop resource for information about the commercial sexual exploitation of children and youth, with a focus on British Columbia.  Many people want to do something in their community about sexual exploitation but may not know where to start.  You may have a child who you fear is being recruited in to the sex trade.  Or you may be a long-time advocate for the rights of children and youth.  This website is designed to provide you with information that is user-friendly and accessible. 

This toolkit offers a variety of worksheets that can be downloaded and printed for your own use.  These worksheets are available as you browse through the various sections of the toolkit.  They are guides to working on issues of sexual exploitation in your community, based on the expertise of those already working to address sexual exploitation across BC. 

This project was completed by the Justice Institute of British Columbia's Centre for Counselling and Community Safety, with research and writing by Sarah Hunt.  Thanks to Catherine Drennan for her contribution to the legal information worksheet.

Funding for this project has been provided by:Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General (Victim Services Division) and Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada (National Crime Prevention Centre)

With thanks to the toolkit advisory committee members: Broadway Youth Resource Centre, Victim Services, National Crime Prevention Centre, Ministry for Child and Family Development, McCreary Youth Foundation and Children of the Street Society.
