IWIN (I'm Worth It Now) is an initiative started in 2019 by the St. Michaels CWL Council in Calgary, with the support of the Calgary Diocesan CWL Council. IWIN seeks to assist human trafficking survivors by raising awareness about this issue and by providing backpacks of basic necessities to survivors of human trafficking who are exiting this lifestyle.  Human trafficking is actually an issue prevalent across Canada and nearly all human trafficking victims are Canadian born.  Trafficked people come from all walks of life, not just those socioeconomically disadvantaged. One of the major reasons it is becoming a growing and prevalent issue is that the profits from a trafficked person are exceptionally high (on average $280,000 per person, per year, and as high as $600,000 per person, per year).  For more information, see our website, join our email list at and follow us on social media (Instagram: @iwin_calgary_; Facebook: or Twitter: @iwin_Calgary)
