Human Trafficking Intervention Prevention Strategy, a collaboration between agencies in Toronto to address domestic human trafficking.

The 2015 symposium explored advanced trauma treatment practice, successes with networks and collaborations, case results and examined what is working right now to address domestic sex trafficking. The conference attendees also explored policy and national strategy, effective peer support approaches, and heard several powerful youth presentations.

H.I.P.S. was established in 2014 by EMYS. EMYS brought together like-minded organizations to develop a regional service collaborative.

The role of H.I.P.S. is to:

  • Build partnerships across sectors
  • Include interdisciplinary approaches
  • Community capacity building
  • Co-ordinate treatment services
  • Include survivor-led initiatives
  • Resource sharing
  • Act as linkage between local, regional, national and international group
