“There are many different facets of human trafficking, the most commonly known being sexual exploitation or sex trafficking, which is different from the charges laid to date for this specific investigation,” stated RCMP in a release on Thursday.

Police say the men have ties to Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Quebec.

RCMP are asking anyone with information on the suspects’ whereabouts to contact their local police force or Crime Stoppers.
