Human sex trafficking and sexual exploitation of women are worldwide phenomena. This problem exists in our community, targeting young people you may know. There are solutions to this problem that have worked elsewhere, and we want to take action here.

Stir it Up Collective is an incorporated not-for-profit organization based in Eastern Ontario. We are coming together to offer support via opportunities for employment and healing workshops for women recovering from sex trafficking. To support this work, we have created partnerships with local agencies and businesses.

As a fundraiser, we have organized a Paint Night with local artist Faye Lavergne in Carleton Place, on Sunday, September 12.  For a registration fee of $60, you will receive your canvas, painting supplies, instructions from Faye and snacks.  Bags of Stir It Up coffee, a blend created in partnership with Equator Coffee Roasters, will be available for purchase (first bag free for participants).

Join us for a fun experience while supporting the work of Stir It Up Collective.  To register, for more information about our work, or to make a donation, go to
