« Let's give them back their dignity ! »


November 2 2019 @ 6PM

You are warmly invited to attend the third edition of The Way Out Gala !

Several artists and personalities will be in the spotlight and guests will enjoy a festive atmosphere enhanced by a cocktail and a gourmet meal.

« Your involvement really makes a difference in a person's life »




The funds raised will be used to provide help and support, to develop a housing resource so that sex trafficking victims can undertake steps towards social reintegration.

This support system primarily aims to equip the participant to discover and re-establish their sense of autonomy, a mindset and lifestyle change that leads to personal freedom to develop life skills.

Secondly, this support system aims to help establish a healthy community network founded on family and societal values. Our program is dedicated to young women aged 18-35, as this age group is the most targeted.

Discussing about the prevalence of sex trafficking here in Canada and explaining that the population needs to be more aware of this fact. Extract from an interview on Breakfast Television :

« I think people are a little confused what the true process is when a person is taken (into sex trafficking), ANYONE can be taken. And anyone is a (potential target) victim of sex trafficking and I start by saying that because everyone is a daughter or a son of someone and until it involves you, sometime you don’t realize that. “I know nothing about this”.  » (text in parenthesis and bold emphasis added)
