ALL NEW – SIMPLY THE BEST Season 9!

Millions of Temporary Filipino Workers are victims of Labour Trafficking and Exploitation in Canada, US and all over the world. Labour trafficking and abuse is happening everyday. It is happening right here in British Columbia. The West Coast Domestic Workers Association and Migrante BC have recently joined forces with the Lawyers Rights Watch Canada and the Vancouver & District Labour Council to make an awareness on the exploitation and trafficking in BC in an event held at the Fraserview Banquet Hall.

The event keynote speaker was former US congresswoman Velma Veloria who spoke about labour exploitation and the importance of awareness to help the victims. She was also instrumental in passing a law that made human trafficking a crime in the US. MLA Mable Elmore also recognized the courage and strength of former live-in caregiver and victim of human trafficking, Leticia Sarmiento, that paved the way for others to report their unfortunate situations.

We need the community to be more vigilant and see warning signs of exploitation. To help victims of trafficking, please go to www.wcdwa.ca for more information.
