Prostitution in Canada | Decriminalizing Prostitution in Canada



Prostitution in Canada
Prostitution in Canada is generally not illegal. However, there are laws criminalizing activities related to prostiution. Three Toronto women challenged anti-prostitution laws in October 2009, arguing that those prohibitions prevented them from conducting their business in the safety of their homes or brothels and forced them into hasty street conversations with potential customers, with no time to weed out those who might be dangerous.

A Toronto judge made a decision favoring the appeal of the three prostitutes. But Canada's Court of Appeal Thursday blocked the said ruling that effectively decriminalized prostitution in Canada until April to allow for an appeal. Story from inquirer.net.
