A new survey by a sex worker advocacy group in Canada suggests that Canada has the highest number of sex workers per capita in the world.
The survey, by the Canadian Association of Sex Work Professionals, found that Canada had 1,873 sex workers for every 100,000 people.
This was compared to the United States with 1,716 sex workers and the UK with 969 sex workers.
The study found that Canadian sex workers were paid lower wages than other workers, and that they were less likely to have access to safe and legal sex.
“Sex work is a labor-intensive industry that has to be controlled by the people who are paying for it,” said Dr. Jill McQuillan, co-author of the study.
“There are so many barriers to the labor market for sex workers, it’s not surprising that they’re being targeted for exploitation.”
The survey found that while many Canadian sex worker have a higher rate of employment and earnings, the average income of a sex work worker is less than $2,000 a year.
According to the study, more than one-third of sex worker workers were employed full-time.
“The reality is that people who come into sex work are not working because they are desperate, they’re not working for financial reasons, they are working because there are better jobs available in their community,” said McQuidan.
“They are working for economic reasons and that is very difficult to measure.
So it’s really important to get the numbers out there.”
Some experts suggest that the number of people entering the sex industry is rising rapidly because there is an increase in the number and types of jobs available.
“In my view, this is a problem,” said David Givens, the president of the Canadian Medical Association’s Committee on Health Care Workers.
“People are leaving the sex trade to find work elsewhere.
We need to see that number of Canadians who are entering the industry decline, and we need to be looking at ways to encourage that.”
The Canadian Medical Protective Association also pointed out that the survey showed that sex workers in Canada are more likely to report unsafe working conditions and unsafe practices, which have been linked to sexual assault.
“This is an industry that is highly dangerous,” said Jennifer K. Maitland, CEO of the CMPPA.
“It is a huge industry.
It’s very dangerous, and the health and safety of workers is not being taken seriously.”
However, the CPPA said that many sex workers feel safe working within the industry.
“I have a number of clients who have come to me and said, ‘I am safe in my job.
My boss is not threatening me or anything like that,'” said Maitlands.
“So, if you have a client that’s feeling that way, you should feel safe in your job.
You should be comfortable with your work.
There is no reason for people to feel unsafe.”
However the number is not as high as some experts say.
“You know, if we were talking about the United Kingdom, where we have this huge debate over prostitution, it would be something that is getting discussed very, very frequently in the media, and there is definitely a very large difference in the amount of harm and abuse that is done to sex workers there compared to here,” said K.K. Hargrave, a sex researcher at the University of Western Ontario.
“What is also significant is that the sex workers here are much more likely than the sex work industry in general to report being sexually assaulted.”
In Canada, the government has taken steps to address the issue, including enacting the Sex Offenders Charter.
The legislation requires the Canadian government to establish clear and consistent standards for how sex offenders are dealt with.
According for example, if a sex offender is convicted of a serious crime, the convicted sex offender must be supervised for five years, and must be subject to an assessment and treatment program.
The bill also makes it illegal to use drugs or alcohol while in a position of trust, and makes it an offence to harass, stalk or intimidate a sex workers or any other sex worker in a way that could harm her or her children.
According Hargroth, the legislation has made a difference.
“We’re not really seeing a lot of changes to the legislation.
We’re not seeing an increase, and I would expect that to continue,” she said.
The government also recently increased funding for the federal government’s Child and Youth Advocacy Network.
The program has been criticized for focusing on children and young people and not on adults.
According the Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, the number one cause of sexual assault is sexual assault of children.
Houghton said the program is still not fully implemented and will continue to work with other agencies to help victims and their families get justice.
“If we have one person who is sexually assaulted, it can happen to any number of victims,” said Houghtons co
