Human Trafficking – H.I.P.S.


HIPSLogoFinalHuman Trafficking Intervention Prevention Strategy (H.I.P.S.)  is a collaboration between agencies in Toronto to address domestic human trafficking.


East Metro Youth Services chairs H.I.P.S. across Toronto. This successful collaborative, lead by the EMYS team, ensures that the 20-plus agencies across the Greater Toronto Areat can co-ordinate their activities to achieve a greater impact and build partnerships across sectors.

  • Create an opportunity for community capacity building
  • Co-ordinate treatment services
  • Include survivor-led initiatives

  • Act as linkage between local, regional, national and international groups
