Hope Restored Canada’s Summit for Eradicating Sexual Exploitation in Canada


Hope Restored Canada is excited to host the 2019 annual Summit in order for us to grow in hope, become equipped, and respond to this local issue.

The summit is an opportunity for our communities, businesses, and members of HRC to be educated on the problem of sexual exploitation, and how we can work together to eradicate human trafficking in our communities and country! The event will feature amazing speakers from across Canada, stories of survivors, and highlight the work of our committed volunteers at HRC!
