Mrs. Smith is recognized as one of Canada's leading anti-human trafficking activists. Following her election in 2004, Mrs. Smith led the discussion on human trafficking at a national level which resulted important changes in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. Her continued efforts to raise the issue of human trafficking on the Status of Women Committee resulted in an intensive study of the issue by the committee and the release of highly regarded report on human trafficking in 2007 called Turning Outrage Into Action. One of her major achievements was the unanimous passing by the House of Commons in 2007 of her Private Members Motion M-153 on human trafficking which called on Parliament to condemn the trafficking of women and children across international borders for the purposes of sexual exploitation and to immediately adopt a comprehensive strategy to combat the trafficking of persons worldwide. In 2011, she founded the "Joy Smith Foundation”, where she tirelessly volunteers her time combatting human trafficking, and fighting for the rights of women in Canada and around the globe. Joy Smith was moved to action by personally meeting victims of human trafficking and coming to understand that trafficker’s prey on children from every demographic, community, and neighbourhood in Canada. Sustained by her faith, she continues to work with victims, advocates, and law enforcement through the Joy Smith Foundation by raising awareness and providing tangible support to organizations dedicated to ending human trafficking. Joy Smith is known as a leading advocate against human trafficking worldwide, and a champion of women’s rights. Over the years she has helped many young victims who have been exploited or trafficked by their abusers. "Human Traffickers are empowered by public apathy and emboldened by despair. So let us shake off the shackles of indifference and refuse to be complacent. Let us work together to bring an end to this injustice as we rescue the victims of Modern Day Slavery.” – Joy Smith http://joysmithfoundation.com
