Who We Are

Centre to Empower All Survivors of Exploitation (CEASE) & Trafficking is an Edmonton-based charity committed to empowering survivors of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. We support individuals in rebuilding their lives through one-to-one support in the community, victim assistance through the courts, paying for fees to go back to school, and financial management. We work in cooperation with community, government, and law enforcement to help sexually exploited and trafficked persons heal and renew their lives.

Our Brand

The CEASE logo was designed by April Eve Wiberg, a bi-racial Lakota - Cree iskwêw (woman) and an Indigenous human rights movement builder. Our logo embodies the optimism for what the future holds and the positive transformation it can bring.
