Motel 6 and Studio 6 Canada is committed to doing its part to end human trafficking in all forms and to help increase awareness of this global crime as the nation recognizes Human Trafficking Awareness Month in January.

Human trafficking prevention starts on the front lines, and as an industry, we need to be able to identify important indicators, said Irwin Prince, President & COO, Realstar Hospitality. We are dedicated to providing a safe, comfortable environment for all of our guests and team members across the country.”

Motel 6& Studio 6 Canada takes a proactive, zero-tolerance stance on human trafficking. It has implemented a comprehensive awareness, training and response program to help address this global problem within the communities it serves. Every year, all Motel 6& Studio 6 property team members must participate in the company’s proprietary Room Next Door anti-human trafficking training or the Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking (BEST) Inhospitable to Human Trafficking online training. The company has found success in this approach as all team members share an active role in recognizing the signs and proactively responding to fight trafficking.

Motel 6& Studio 6 continues to strengthen their partnerships with a range of organizations that include A21 and ECPAT, as well as groups that directly provide services and support to survivors, including New Friends, New Life and Truckers Against Trafficking.

We will continue to provide our owners and operators with the best tools and resources to strengthen our anti-trafficking efforts further,” added Prince.
