Abstract

This study, The Exploitation or Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons?, was intended to dissect the inner workings of the newly implemented Bill C-36 in Canada, The Protection of Communities and Exploited Peoples Act through a mixed methods approach. This was done through comparing statistical research (demographics, crime data, and overall economic state) within Regina to interviews conducted with those individually involved in prostitution and the community of the city. This study was meant to draw out the differences between what the statistics depict, a growth in the overall safety of Regina, versus the perspectives gained from multiple interviewees. With this mixed methods approach I have deduced that Bill C-36 is not achieving what it was set out to do. The conclusion of this paper outlines a variety of alternative measures, aimed at efficiently improving the safety of these women affected by Bill C-36 and the communities of Canada. The solutions proposed are gained from different global case studies and research done pertaining to sex work and the intricate business industry it has generated.
