Brandt Teams Up With Brandt to Help Fight Human Trafficking.

May 30, 2023

Brandt has joined the fight against human trafficking with a $10,000 donation to the #NotInMyCity campaign. The campaign raises awareness and brings private and public sectors together to take collective action to prevent and end human trafficking. #NotInMyCity is an initiative of the BuckSpring Foundation, which was founded by musician Paul Brandt.

“Brandt is proud to support #NotInMyCity. We are deeply invested in the communities where our employees and customers live. Putting an end to human trafficking will help make those communities better places for everyone,” says Pat Whyte, Vice-President of Operations—Brandt Construction & Forestry, Southern Alberta.

In 2021, Canada had 352 reported human trafficking cases, for an average of 1.4 incidents per 100,000 people.

#NotInMyCity recently hosted Canada’s first operational National Summit for Frontline Human Trafficking Investigators, “The Maddison Sessions”, where law enforcement strategized, compared tactics, discussed desired outcomes, and explored mental health, PTSD, and trauma awareness. The event was dedicated to Maddison Fraser, who lost her life to human trafficking in Alberta.

“Our favourite comment from a delegate so far was that he felt that The Maddison Sessions had ‘set the fight against human trafficking in Canada ahead by 10 years!” says Paul Brandt, who recently paid a visit to our Calgary branch. “We couldn’t have hosted an event like this without funding partners like the Brandt Group of Companies. We’re thankful to all the allies who stepped up for some of Canada’s most vulnerable by supporting #NotInMyCity.”

The donation is part of the Brandt Thanks A Billion program, which shows our gratitude to our customers, employees, and communities. Since the program began in 2011, we’ve given more than $22 million dollars in support of 250 communities and 5,000 organizations, enriching thousands of lives and making our communities better places to live and work.
