Halton Collaborative Against Human Trafficking

Human trafficking has been identified as a growing problem in Canada, specifically the Greater Toronto Area, which includes our Halton communities of Acton, Burlington, Georgetown, Halton Hills, Milton, and Oakville. In 2015, a group of individuals and agencies came together to discuss coordinated response strategies. Other local service providers were then invited to join in establishing the Halton Collaborative Against Human Trafficking (HCAHT) with the goals of combatting human trafficking and sexual exploitation in our region and supporting other regions in meeting the same goal.


The Halton Collaborative Against Human Trafficking (HCAHT) exists to create and support a united Halton community and regional response to combat human trafficking. The HCAHT works as a hub of community efforts to:

  • Advance the rights of survivors of human trafficking,

  • Coordinate the delivery of services to people who have been and/or are in situations of human trafficking,

  • Collectively break down and address systemic barriers survivors face when accessing services,

  • Prevent further instances of human trafficking by raising awareness of the issue, and

  • Build service providers’ capacity to support survivors of human trafficking through a harm reduction, trauma-informed approach, and an anti-racist/anti-oppressive framework.


A Halton and global community where Human Trafficking cannot thrive.
