Devon Freeman’s death was a heartbreaking loss that was felt by all those who knew him. As a child welfare organization, we strive to support families and do work that has a positive effect on children’s safety and well-being — a role that involves working with some of the most vulnerable families and children in the community.
Hamilton CAS supports the decision of the coroner to call an inquest into Devon’s death. We are committed to working together with Devon’s family, the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation and our partners in the community to help identify and implement recommendations that would reduce the risk of a tragedy like Devon’s death from happening again.
Safety, permanency and well-being for all children and youth remain our priority and focus at Hamilton CAS.
