Ottawa cracks down on stripper visas

Strip clubs say they’ve been forced to recruit more students


Owners of strip clubs in the Greater Toronto Area say they’re experiencing a shortage of dancers after Ottawa began cracking down on visas for adult entertainment workers, reports the Toronto Sun. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews responded to the accusation by the Adult Entertainment Association of Canada on Saturday by suggesting that strip clubs are participating in human trafficking. Tim Labrinos of the AEAC said the industry is fighting human trafficking by meeting with every single dancer to inform them of their legal rights. Labrinos added that because of the shortage of dancers, Toronto’s 33 strip clubs will be required to recruit more students. He said that students already make up roughly 20 per cent of Toronto’s 5,000 exotic dancers and that at least one club already offers full tuition payment on top of wages.
