About Restorations

Ride, or walk with us, on Saturday, October 1st!


Human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation happens in our own communities here in Canada. In the past decade, there have been more than 1,700 incidents of human trafficking reported by Canadian police services, and most of the victims were women or girls. We know this is only a glimpse of the larger issue across our country and in our own communities.


Restorations exists to support Survivors of sexual exploitation and trafficking by providing long-term residential housing, survivor-led peer programming, and holistic care. We will create a thriving, national survivor-led community that Empowers Survivors of sexual exploitation and trafficking to a life of holistic, self-determined well being.


This year, we are celebrating the opening of Nancy's House! Proceeds from Ride for Refuge will benefit the survivors we support through our residential and survivor-led peer support programs.
