    Bedford v. Canada was a legal challenge to Canada's prostitution laws filed in the Superior Court of Ontario in 2007. The applicants, Terri-Jean Bedford, Amy Lebovitch and Valerie Scott, argued that Canada's prostitution laws were unconstitutional. The Canadian Criminal Code includes a number of provisions outlawing public communication for the purposes of prostitution, operating a bawdy house or living off of the avails of prostitution. However prostitution itself is not illegal. The applicants argued that the laws deprive sex workers of their right to security by forcing them to work in secret.

    Jaclyn Miles (born 1988) is a woman from Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada. She is an alumnus of General Amherst High School. She spent four years at this high school and was sexually bullied there all four years. She is the founder of Break the Silence, an organization opposing human trafficking, sexual assault, domestic violence, and bullying. She was named Miss Canada in 2012. She replaced American comedian Stephen Colbert as Grand Marshal of the Santa Claus parade in Windsor, Ontario that year. Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Area chair Larry Horwitz referred to Miles as "better and much more attractive" than Colbert, who had been sought out for the parade because of his reference to Windsor as the "earth's rectum" in his book America Again: Re-becoming The Greatness We Never Weren't. Miles is a human rights defender and, in May 2013, joined former Premier of Manitoba Howard Pawley in opposing a proposed trespass law in Windsor arguing that the proposed law "violates our rights as Canadian citizens." Miles was a host on TaggTV's reality-television-style Facebook videos about Guyana. She has attended Brescia University College, the University of Windsor, and the Western Faculty of Education.

    Laura María Agustín is a sociologist who studies undocumented migration, informal labor markets, trafficking and the sex industry. She is critical of the conflation of the terms "human trafficking" with "prostitution", arguing that the Rescue industry often ascribes victim status to people (most often women) who have made conscious and rational decisions to migrate knowing they will be selling sex and who do not consider themselves to be victims. She states that such views on prostitution originate in what she calls "fundamentalist feminism". She advocates for a cultural study of commercial sex, a theoretical framework she created in the journal Sexualities in 2005.
