The sex trade is active in many countries and many of them are protected by the law. For instance, there are elite Sydney CBD escorts that are thriving well in the industry but there are those less fortunate that wishes they can leave their job as a sex worker but sees no way out. This is why La Sortie or, in English, The Way Out was developed in Quebec. It is a facility intended to shelter and help sex workers that wish to escape the sex trade.
Quebec is proud to say that this is the first facility of its kind in the area. The shelter is a converted bungalow located in Vaudreuil, Quebec which is situated in the outskirt of Montreal. Sex workers who no longer wish to stay in the trade can seek help there as the organization managing will supply it with resources and transportation will also be provided in case they need to do something outside of the facility.
An intervention counselor in the name of Maylissa said that Quebec has the best programs and this is the reason why they established the facility there in order to access the programs. The support they will offer will be based on the needs of the individual and the facility will accompany them into the respective programs they wish.
The shelter’s journey is not an easy one and the federal grant made it possible for them to open the facility. The current building is not the original facility they wanted. Two years ago, they started a project close to Ile-Bizard but it did not push through because of oppositions from the residents.
According to Chantal who is one of the board members of La Sortie, the people are willing to extend a hand but they are not in favour of a facility within their neighbourhood. There are doubts about the shelter as it is founded by a pastor but the director general clarified that the goal of their project is secular. Facilities such as this inspire other cities to provide sex workers including Sydney CBD escorts the help they need when necessary.
