The Sexual Exploitation Working Group Issues Brief Concerning Legislation that Seeks to End the Demand for Sexual Exploitation

On February 25, 2022, the Council’s Sexual Exploitation Working Group issued a Brief to the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights of the House of Commons concerning The Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act (PCEPA) Review.

The PCEPA aims to end the demand for paid sex and recognizes prostitution as inherently exploitive and dangerous (Source: The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada).

The Justice Committee has recently begun its review of these laws, prompting the SEWG to issue this Brief.

In its statement, the SEWG voiced affirmation for this which “strengthens the protection of the rights of children, women and men to be free from violence and exploitation, specifically sexual exploitation, and imposes criminal sanctions on those who profit from and exploit others for their own benefit.”
