Actions Speak Louder- Act Now Canada!

Canada’s anthem declaring the ‘True North, strong and free’ may proclaim equality for all, but we are far from that desired vision. God created us to live in freedom, unity and equality.
— HRC Introductory Module 1

Being a Canadian allows us freedoms that we cannot take for granted. This includes the rights and responsibilities outlined in the Discover Canada guide for citizenship and highlighted in HRC's own Introductory Training Module.  As mentioned in our Introductory Module: "Canada's anthem declaring the ‘true north, strong and free’, may proclaim equality for all, but we are far from that desired vision. God created us to live in freedom, unity and equality."

The question is: do we live by that vision in our own lives, families and communities?

Sexual Exploitation and Trafficking is a reality we cannot deny any longer as a nation. This is pure evil that has been tolerated or ignored and this simply cannot be a social justice issue we wish away. The "hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil" adage doesn't hold any weight when it comes to creating sustainable change, but rather it perpetuates the abuses. Rather, we must embrace the truth that actions speak louder than words. We encourage all Canadians to do their part to end human trafficking!

Although we are a relatively new, non-profit with our home office based in Saskatoon, we intentionally chose a national name for our charity. We believe that if each and every person does one thing, we can see an end to the commodification, exploitation and trafficking of persons in this generation. 

Not sure where to start?

If you are not sure where to start, there are numerous ways that the average Canadian can take action. We've outlined a few of those action steps on our website, click here to learn more:

Canada is destined to be a nation that is truly "strong and free." So rather than turning a blind eye to the oppression all around, we need to ditch the "Canadian politeness", ask the hard questions, pull up our sleeves, and get serious to work to truly make a difference in this country. Eradicating sexual exploitation takes great faith, collaboration, commitment and resources.

This past June, we participated in the Great Canadian Challenge and over $7,000 was donated to Hope Restored Canada as a result of community effort. Thank you to all who contributed to our cause!

We continue the journey this summer by developing programming for holistic restoration, expanding outreach training which includes equipping hotels to recognize the signs of sexual exploitation in their place of business in order to respond rightly.

If you'd like to partner with us, we are seeking monthly donors to expand our mission across this nation. Click here to learn more.

As we search our own hearts, pray for this nation, and move to action, we can have Hope Restored!
