A local woman is facing human trafficking charges after a five-year investigation into the unlawful

employment of foreign nationals in the Edmonton-area workforce, including the hotel service sector

and private housecleaning.

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has laid five charges against the woman for employing

foreign nationals locally.

The CBSA's Criminal Investigations Section alleges the workers were in Canada either: as visitors,

authorized to work only for other employers, or were illegally in Canada past their authorized stay.
