OTTAWA, Ontario, June 27, 2014 – The Honourable Steven Blaney, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness today commended the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for its investigation leading to five charges against an individual, including human trafficking, following a five-year investigation into the unlawful employment of foreign nationals in the Edmonton area. CBSA announced that Jennilyn Morris was charged with offences under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). These are the first criminal charges for human trafficking laid by CBSA in Alberta, pursuant to the IRPA.

“I would like to commend the Canada Border Services Agency on their diligent work that led to this arrest and these charges,” said Minister Blaney. “Our Government remains committed to identifying and charging fraudulent individuals who take advantage of our country's laws.”
