Hamilton CAS supports the decision of the coroner to call an inquest into the death of Devon Freeman.  We are committed to working together with Devon’s family, his nation, the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation and 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.

About Hamilton CAS

The Children’s Aid Society (CAS) of Hamilton, in partnership with families and our community, is committed to the safety, protection, and well-being of children and the strengthening of families, while valuing diversity and promoting equity.

The Children’s Aid Society (CAS) of Hamilton was established in 1894 as a not-for-profit organization focused on ensuring the well-being and protection of children. The Society is funded by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services and mandated under Ontario’s Child, Youth and Family Services Act (CYFSA) to protect children under 18 years of age from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse and harm.

The Society is committed to ensuring that a child, youth and family’s culture, race, Indigeneity, religion, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation, gender identity and ability are integrated in our services and practices. Trained child welfare staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year to respond to concerns about the safety and well-being of children and youth.

We envision a community where every child is a gift to be valued, nurtured, and kept safe.

~ Serving Hamilton’s children & families since 1894 ~
