BridgeNorth is a community organization based in York Region, Ontario, which is dedicated to helping commercially sexually exploited women and children build the healthy lives that they want to live.

Journey Canada is a community-based, Christ-centred discipleship ministry that exists to help people find hope and live life through experiencing Jesus in their relationships, sexuality and identity.
While sexual exploitation of youth has been an ongoing issue in Canada and our world for generations, there has been growing concern and need for better understanding of the issue in recent years. There is therefore a need for resources that speak specifically to the issue in our own country. We are thrilled to be able to provide a resource that features strong Canadian role models and presents the issue from a distinctly Canadian perspective.
