What is

GREAT is a registered Canadian charity serving as a multi-sectoral resource and coordination centre to combat human trafficking.

The Global Resource Epicenter Against Human Trafficking (GREAT) was convened with the intent to bring increased public awareness, promote research, and improve professional skills, and provide information sharing and analytical support to the fight against human trafficking in all its forms

What is our

The mission of Global Resource Epicenter Against Human Trafficking (GREAT) is to bring increased public awareness, promote research, and improve professional skills, and provide information sharing and analytical support to the fight against human trafficking in all its forms.

What do we do?

Training and awareness

Research and education

GREAT provides resources and direct training to practitioners (ranging from patrol officers and investigators) to educators.  GREAT also provides awareness learning tools designed for “at risk” groups and individuals (ranging from our in-school programs to initiatives designed for marginalized community members).

Human trafficking takes on many forms, has many causal factors and is influenced by a myriad of social elements. Unfortunately there is no single solution for this issue.  As a result, complex academic research is required to gather a fuller understanding of the issue in communities around the globe, in order to inform public policy decisions and make resources allocation decisions. 

GREAT is linked to universities around the globe where we provide advanced academic instruction and coordinate post-doctoral research.

Convening dialogue

Information and intelligence development

GREAT works towards building strong and resilient communities by convening dialogue amongst stakeholders and service delivery partners.  We bring together experts at the local, regional, national and international level to share experiences, best practices and lessons learned to support resources coordination and community collaboration.

Since 2013, GREAT has hosted the international human trafficking conference series “Together Let’s Stop Traffick” in furtherance of this goal.

While, training, education, research and dialogue are all crucial elements in combating human trafficking, there is a need to get this information out to the people that on the front line working with “at risk” communities, vulnerable sectors and those being trafficked.

GREAT draws upon our resources in the academic and intelligence fields to produce and disseminate strategic intelligence documents designed to inform and help guide people, organizations and governments in their efforts to combat human trafficking in their community.
