Brothels are illegal in Canada, but the country's prostitution laws have recently been challenged in the court as unconstitutional. Prostitution itself is legal, however solicitation, procuring or living off the avails of prostitution can land you in jail.

  在加拿大卖淫是非法的,但是该国卖淫法律最近在法院却遭到"不符合宪法“的质疑。卖淫本身是合法行为,但是,交易,拉皮条或以卖淫为生却能让你镗啷入狱.


In my opinion, "living off the avails of prostitution" should be translated as 靠他人卖淫的收入为生.
