New GBTA Podcast

Human Trafficking: Get Onboard and Make a Difference

The intent of this podcast is to educate our membership on the Human Trafficking in Canada from a Meeting Professional, Accommodation and law enforcement perspective in Canada. We define human trafficking and outline who is at risk from whom and where. We outline the key sectors that HT is found and what steps travelers can take to help and initiatives in place to improve the situation. We review Canadian legislation around HT and how that can help. We review what types of questions that travel managers can add to their RFPs to ensure suppliers are getting onboard. Brought to you by the Canadian Transportation and Risk Committees.
