In 2014, former Bill C-36, the Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act, enacted a version of the “Nordic Model”, first implemented in Sweden in 1999, and then subsequently in other countries, including Norway, France and Ireland. The Government is very concerned about the safety of all the persons engaged in the sex trade and is committed to taking into account the interests of all impacted groups. Former Bill C-36 requires that a comprehensive Parliamentary review of its provisions be undertaken within five years of its enactment. Parliament is responsible for starting this review, which will provide an appropriate forum for Parliamentarians to examine the full range of effects that this legislation has had since its coming into force.
