MSHT Response Certificate - Salvation Army Canada

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Response Certificate

As part of our Territorial Fight For Freedom Strategy, we strongly believe that effective and intentional awareness, education, and training is needed to mobilize people within Canada and Bermuda to fight against modern slavery and human trafficking. 

Commencing in Spring 2021, we will be offering a free online Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Response Certificate comprised of four modules (offered one per month over four months).  Whether you are an officer, an employee, a volunteer, a Salvationist, a friend of The Salvation Army, part of a youth group, or a parent – this is for you!  These are the four modules that we will be offering:
