Human Trafficking National Coordination Centre
The RCMP has established a Human Trafficking National Coordination Centre (HTNCC) at RCMP Headquarters in Ottawa.
The Centre provides a focal point for law enforcement in their efforts to combat and disrupt individuals and criminal organizations involved in Human Trafficking activities.
The HTNCC has five priorities:
- Develop tools, protocols and guidelines to facilitate Human Trafficking investigations.
- Coordinate national awareness/training and anti-trafficking initiatives.
- Identify and maintain lines of communication, identify issues for integrated coordination and provide support
- Develop and maintain international partnerships and coordinate international initiatives.
- Coordinate intelligence and facilitate the dissemination of all sources of information/ intelligence.
Reporting Human Trafficking
To report a case or suspicion of human trafficking, contact the National Hotline:
This multi-lingual and confidential hotline is operational 24/7, 365 days a year. It offers services in more than 200 languages and is accessible to the deaf, hard-of-hearing and non-verbal publics.
The website for the Hotline can be used by the public for:
- Submitting a tip
- A national directory of social services
- Education and outreach materials
- Statistics and research reports
To report a crime, or for immediate police assistance , contact your local RCMP detachment or the police service of jurisdiction in your area.
If you wish to report a crime anonymously, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
When should you call?
You should contact the hotline if you or someone you know may be a victim of human trafficking. The Hotline Response Advocates will also take tips, questions and hear concerns from the public and forward information, when appropriate, to law enforcement.
