WTFC, Walmart, Truckers Aim to Put a Wrap on Human Trafficking

Walmart Canada, the Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada and Crime Stoppers joined forces this week to step up the fight against human trafficking.

At an event in Mississauga, Walmart – a member of the Ontario Trucking Association, announced it would become the first Fleet ambassador to the Know Human Trafficking awareness campaign in conjunction WTFC and Crime Stoppers. The fleet will wrap four of its trailers in stunning graphics to raise awareness to prevent human trafficking.

OTA was also represented at the event by Dave Martin, VP eastern operations, Bison Transport.

The vent hosted Minister of Transportation Caroline Mulroney as a key speaker and was attended by several local MPPs, councillors, and police, among other businesses and stakeholders.

The Know Human Trafficking campaign aims to raise public awareness about human trafficking and educate people about how they can help those at-risk.

“Human Trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery and globally a billion-dollar a year industry, says Shelley Walker, CEO of WTFC. “Often hiding in plain sight, no community is immune to its existence.”

OTA is a proud supporter of WTFC and the Know Human Trafficking campaign.

Anyone who would like to know about the campaign or get involved can contact Shelley Walker at shelleyu@wtfc.ca.
