WINGS

In Sep­tem­ber 2023, a Supe­ri­or Court judge in Ontario ruled that Canada’s 2014 law out­law­ing the pur­chase of sex did not vio­late the Char­ter of Rights and Free­doms. That law was loose­ly mod­elled on Swe­den’s 1999 leg­is­la­tion — AKA the Nordic Mod­el — which focus­es on crim­i­nal­iz­ing the buy­ers. This pro­gram includes excerpts from a talk by Gunil­la Ekberg, Spe­cial Advi­sor to Swe­den’s Divi­sion of Gen­der Equal­i­ty, as well as audi­ence mem­bers attend­ing the Cana­di­an Asso­ci­a­tion of Sex­u­al Assault Cen­tres con­fer­ence in 2005. Includes recog­ni­tion of con­tro­ver­sy, and the impor­tance of finan­cial sup­ports to help with exits and to pre­vent recruit­ment. Updat­ed to 2023.
