Procurement is also illegal. Prostitution is further limited or controlled through provincial and municipal nuisance laws, zoning and bylaws.
Cities also attach requirements to business licensure of escort services. For instance, Windsor, Canada requires a background check on each escort. Oddly enough, it is legal to sell sexual services, but in some cases, it is illegal to solicit in public.
Legislation took effect on December 6, , which made the purchase of sexual services illegal after legislation passed in by the Supreme Court of Canada. The Court declared unconstitutional the laws prohibiting brothels, public communication for the purpose of prostitution, and living on the profits of prostitution thus switching the criminal aspects of prostitution to the purchaser of the services rather than the prostitute.
In , as a result of the legislation, a new law, the "Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act PCEPA ," was introduced that makes it illegal to purchase sexual services, but not to sell them. In fact, there are over ten of them, many of which advertise in free weekly newspapers and on internet websites. The client must instigate the contact and arrange a date directly with the escort.
Because provinces and municipalities do not have the jurisdiction to outlaw prostitution directly and Canadian courts have struck down some licensure requirements and bylaws as discriminatory, some Canadian municipalities have worked to curb prostitution through John-shaming tactics. John-shaming can include posting the names of people charged with street prostitution offenses and photos of cars frequenting solicitation areas.
