About us

Who we are

Created in 2015, The Beacon of the Freed is a non-profit organization in the Laurentians that raises awareness among governments, organizations and the public about the reality of human trafficking. It offers direct intervention and training and helps improve the service offer, particularly to the private sector. Together towards a dignified society where human beings are no longer exploited.

Through our concrete and global actions, we are making governments, organizations and the public aware of the reality of human trafficking so that it is recognized and that the fight against it is well organized and effective. We are actively working to develop direct intervention programs to improve the current service offer.
