What we do
Raising awareness on the existence of sex tourism and human trafficking
Air Canada is committed to continue raising awareness of the existence of human trafficking, and the criminal sexual exploitation of children and youth. For many years, Air Canada has shown an onboard video dealing with the realities of human trafficking and sex tourism.
In 2010, Air Canada hosted a conference organized by the International Bureau for Children’s Rights (IBCR) to increase awareness within the Canadian airline and travel sectors on the issue of child sex tourism. We also provided complimentary advertisement space in our award-winning onboard magazine EnRoute. IBCR also organized a press conference at the Montreal airport where Air Canada was recognized for its leadership role in fighting this global problem.
We continue to raising awareness on the existence of human trafficking for the purpose of the criminal sexual exploitation of children and youth. In our quest to make an even greater impact, our personnel has been provided with tools to more effectively recognize and report suspected cases of such illegal activity onboard our flights.
