The exotic dancing industry is turning to high schools to help fill its labour shortage.

According to The Toronto Star, their approach involves targeting girls at schools and job fairs.

Earlier this month, the federal government put a ban on foreign strippers entering the country to work, in an effort to stop the sex trade from exploiting them.

Tim Lambrinos, the head of the Adult Entertainment Association of Canada, said the recruiting tactic will begin soon, but he has not made contact with job fairs or schools at this time.
