An information session for parents is returning to Goderich, on the issue of human trafficking in Huron County.
Attendees of similar sessions in October heard from Executive Director Deborah Logue, who says the trafficking of people takes a different form in rural Ontario than it does in the city.
Logue will be speaking this evening to parents, guardians, and caregivers about what forms trafficking takes in Huron County, and what measures can be taken to prevent it.
Logue says predators utilize social media more in the country, to lure young people into situations where they may feel pressured to take part in illicit activities.
She tells Country 104.9 News the trafficking of humans increases as economic development rises.
According to Logue, isolation and a lack of transportation can lead victims to be lured online by traffickers.
She also points to a lack of resources in rural Ontario as another reason the free sessions by Victim Services Huron are so important.
The human trafficking session runs Monday from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at Goderich Public School.
