A disproportionate number of sexually exploited children in Canada are aboriginal youth. In some cities, they make up as much as 90% of those children exploited for prostitution.

In 2002, Canada established a tip line for reporting online sexual exploitation of children. The tip line receives over 3,000 reports a month. Since its beginning, more than 511 arrests have been executed in connection to a report and 28 000 URLs have been blocked.

A study showed that between 2009-2014, 25% of victims of trafficking in Canada were under 18.
