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:

  1. Develop tools, protocols and guidelines to facilitate Human Trafficking investigations.
  2. Coordinate national awareness/training and anti-trafficking initiatives.
  3. Identify and maintain lines of communication, identify issues for integrated coordination and provide support
  4. Develop and maintain international partnerships and coordinate international initiatives.
  5. 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.
