Trafficking of Indigenous Women and Girls in Canada

"Indigenous women are disproportionality affected by racialized violence in Canada through exposure to both historic and ongoing gendered discrimination. Canada’s colonial legacy has forced Indigenous women and girls into dangerous and precarious social and economic conditions, which in turn has made them more vulnerable to different kinds of violence. This includes situations of exploitation and human trafficking, a prevailing concern that has yet to be properly addressed and recognized." - Roudometkina and Wakeford, 2018.
