On December 6, 2014, the Canadian government introduced new legislation regarding sex work. This means that many of the laws surrounding sex work have changed. We produced business cards that sex workers can carry discreetly, as well as easily printable facts sheets. Most available information is applicable across Canada. Available in English and in French.
