November 2016 Events:

November 8th - Trust Your Journey, A Story of Resilience, Passion & Triumph with Cameron Mattice

Cameron grew up in an athletic environment competing as an elite baseball player for the Ontario Blue Jays, Team Canada, and eventually at a college in Louisiana on scholarship.

While early in life Cameron was able to achieve success in his sport, it did not happen in the absence of adversity. Cameron’s childhood years overcame Stage 4B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer, two blood clots in his right arm, and underwent reconstructive surgery in his right elbow. These health complications eventually led to the difficult decision of letting go of his childhood dream of becoming a professional athlete.

Since then, Cameron has received a BA Specialized Honours degree in Kinesiology from York University and has accumulated years of practical experience as a Strength Trainer working alongside various chiropractors and other health care professionals.

Although these experiences challenged Cameron’s body, mind, and spirit, he believes that they have given him a greater opportunity in life. As the great Jackie Robinson once said, "A life is not important except in the impact it has on others' lives."

Join Cameron as he shares his inspirational story and some of the insight he has gained through such experiences.

November 25th - Sex Trafficking: Understanding Recruitment & Supporting Survivors

Sex trafficking is one of the most common forms of human trafficking and is currently the globe’s fastest growing criminal activity. While exact estimates of sex trafficking are elusive, we know that it is highly gendered, with 98% of known survivors being women and children and with an average age of recruitment between 12-14 years of age. Contrary to popular belief, the majority of trafficked girls are domestic, locally raised girls in our own communities. Sex trafficking is only beginning to receive attention among service providers, law enforcement, policy makers, and researchers in Canada, and we need to increase awareness and debunk common myths. This talk will address some of the core issues around sex trafficking, including terminology, the cycle of exploitation by sex traffickers, key issues for supporting survivors of sex trafficking, and local support services.
