Lots of action at CATHII

Return to news

The most recent issue of the CATHII-Info newsletter reports on several ongoing projects, including the CATHII-University project initiated last year at the UN. This project aims to train students about human trafficking issues and brings together young people from three Quebec universities. They will be able to participate in workshops on trafficking, presented at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in mid-March.

We also learned that the research project on the empowerment of survivors of trafficking is taking another step forward with the distribution of a questionnaire in three languages. The aim is to document best practices in the community sector with a particular focus on the experiences of victims. The main idea is to identify more clearly the type of interventions that help them regain control of their lives.

Included is a report on the work carried out by RATTMAQ, the Réseau d’aide aux travailleuses et travailleurs migrants agricoles du Québec (Assistance Networks for Migrant Agricultural Workers in Quebec), regarding the issues that concern these people and the need for the government to grant an open work permit to these same agricultural workers

The newsletter of the Comité d’action contre la traite humaine interne et internationale (CATHII – Action Committee Against Internal and International Human Trafficking) is available in English and French.
