Adult entertainment industry may target post-secondary schools

Advanced Education Minister Naomi Yamamoto is warning colleges and universities that the adult entertainment industry may begin focusing its efforts on recruiting students in a more visible way than it has done in the past.

In a letter sent yesterday to BC colleges and universities, Yamamoto advised that based on news stories out of Windsor, Ontario, recruiters for the adult entertainment industry may try to attend post-secondary job fairs this fall in jurisdictions across Canada.

This past spring, the industry suggested it would recruit on or near Vancouver public schools, which prompted a response from school board officials who felt strongly that public educational facilities are not the place to recruit workers for these industries.

The BC government supported that response for the K-12 school system, and believes the same position is warranted for our public post-secondary institutions.
