The OPP invites members of the public, particularly educators and hospitality workers, to attend S.T.A.R.T. (Stop Trafficking, Advocate and Report Today) training.

Participants will learn the indicators of human trafficking, how to identify victims of human trafficking, how people are victimized by human trafficking, and more.
The S.T.A.R.T. program will also feature keynote speaker Timea Nagy, human trafficking survivor, author, speaker and social advocate.
