At which sporting events did the CND sisters present demands to limit human trafficking?
a) The Montreal Grand Prix
b) The Olympic Games
c) The Tour de l’ile
Answers (2 correct answers) :
a) The Montreal Grand Prix: Several sisters of the CND, together with other members of the Anti-Trafficking Movement of Montreal, worked with the staffs of the hotel and restaurant sectors to help them detect situations of trafficking within the context of the Montreal Grand Prix. This small group of sisters succeeded in convincing 37 establishments to become informed about the existence of this phenomenon and how to counter it – a good example of mobilization. https://www.cnd-m.org/fr/justice/traite.php
b) Sister Pierrette Boissé, representative of the CND within the anti-trafficking movement for many years, presented demands to all of the Olympic Games held in recent years. She provided the governments hosting this sporting event with the policies that either needed to be put in place or enacted in order to prevent human trafficking at the Olympic Games. In 2012 she received a positive response from the Mayor of London for this very reason – proof that every action counts!

• a sports center : where victims will have the opportunity to re-learn how to trust others by being part of a positive team environment
• vocational training : where they will be provided with the tools to allow them to become self-sufficient.
