Following the occurred atrocities and horrors that continue to unfold in Ukraine, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has developed guides for Ukrainian newcomers fleeing the war.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is a recognized and well established national police service that works to :
“prevent crime, enforce the law, investigate offences, keep Canadians, and their interests, safe and secure, and assist Canadians in emergency situations/incidents”.
One of the most concerning issues arising as newcomers are arriving to Canada relate to human trafficking concerns. As defined by the Canadian Government’s website, “human trafficking involves recruiting, moving, or holding victims to exploit them for profit, usually for sexual reasons or forced labour.” In order to prevent these situations from occurring, the RCMP has developed the following guides for Ukrainian newcomers.
