Our Expertise

The Staff, Board of Directors, and volunteers of CEASE offer knowledge of sexual exploitation gained through:

  • life experience
  • community development and advocacy
  • criminal justice system processes
  • participatory research to identify root causes, gaps in service, and systemic barriers

We work collaboratively with police agencies, federal, provincial, and municipal government departments, elected representatives and community partners and members to end all sexual exploitation.

With our experience in facilitating the Prostitution Offender Program (“john school”) since 1996, we have gained valuable insights into the “demand” side that fuels sex consumerism, and creates a market for those who pimp, traffic, and profit from the vulnerabilities of women, children, vulnerable males, and transgender persons.
