CATHII to Represent North America on Talitha Kum Committee – Rome

Return to news

In its latest publication, CATHII Info highlights the appointment of Isabelle Couillard the President of the Action Committee Against Internal and International Human Trafficking (CATHII), as the North American representative on the Talitha Kum – Rome Committee. Her three-year term begins in February 2023.

The organization’s newsletter also points to new federal legislation passed on December 15 to impose restrictions on an unknown aspect of human trafficking: trafficking in human organs. This legislation applies to acts committed in Canada and abroad by Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

Recognized for its role in training, CATHII continues its work with young people now in its third consecutive year of the CATHII-University project at the UN. In addition, we also provide training to organizations such as Carrefour Foi (Faith) and spiritualité (spirituality) (Montreal) and the Collective des femmes — Nicolet (Cooperative of Women). The circulation of information on the issue of prostitution, specifically to learn more about the Nordic model, is another way to educate a wide audience.

The bulletin is available in French only.
