An Oakville-based truck wrap marketing company launched its 29th truck in support of the Know Human Trafficking truck advertising campaign Tuesday at Whitby Town Hall.

The campaign hopes to bring awareness to human trafficking in Ontario, which is the source of nearly two-thirds of all human trafficking crimes in the country.

Big Rig Wraps, which was founded in 2013, is committed supporting and raising awareness of human trafficking through its truck advertising campaigns with the help of the Women’s Trucking Federation of Canada and the Ontario Association of Crime Stoppers. A news release from the company noted that the crime is especially prevalent in Durham, with Victim Services of Durham Region supporting more than 1,800 victims over the past five years – almost as many as the Canadian Human Trafficking Hotline has helped over the same period.

The launch of the truck – sponsored by Victim Services of Durham Region, Angelo Pucci Sutton Group Realty and Speedy Transport – attracted a small crowd and several local dignitaries, including Durham Region Chair John Henry, Whitby Mayor Elizabeth Roy and Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade Executive Director Don Terry.

For more information about sponsoring a truck contact Angela Baltkois (705) 927-8809 or visit www.knowhumantrafficking.com to learn more about the campaign.
