Indicators of International Trafficking

My Story: Right now I don’t have status in Canada. I have to leave, but how would I go back to my country? I have been here for four years and if I go back it’s not the same, it’s going to be harder. The situation in my country is more war, more killings, and I am getting old, I don’t know what I would do.
