"You may choose to look the other way, but you can never again say that you did not know."

– William Wilberforce (British Parliamentarian and leader of the campaign to abolish the Atlantic slave trade in the late eighteenth century)

Our Mission

The Joy Smith Foundation works to ensure that every Canadian man, woman and child is safe from manipulation, force, or abuse of power designed to lure and exploit them into the sex trade or forced labour. This is achieved through educating the public, and providing funds and support to front-line organizations that rescue and rehabilitate victims.

Joy Smith


"Joy Smith is Canada's leading anti-Human Trafficking activist and one of Canada's heroes - through her heavy lifting, she put Human Trafficking on the national radar screen. Because of Joy Smith, Canadians can no longer say they didn't know Human Trafficking was occurring in Canada". - Frank O'Dea, Second Cup co-founder, Order of Canada recipient.
