The Association of Native Child and Family Service Agencies of Ontario responds to the recommendations from the jury at the Katelynn Sampson inquest

TORONTO, ON – April 30, 2016 The Association of Native Child and Family Service Agencies of Ontario (ANCFSAO) welcomes the jury’s recommendations resulting from the Katelynn Sampson Inquest.

The inquest, which began in November 2015 sought to identify the circumstances surrounding Katelynn’s death in 2008, and make recommendations to prevent similar incidences and deaths from happening. Katelynn’s young life ended tragically at the hands of her caregivers, both of whom had lengthy criminal records.

The ANCFSAO’s executive director, Mr. Steven Vanloffed, expressed his commitment to review the recommendations and work with the ANCFSAO members and the child welfare sector to prevent further tragedies from happening. “Sadly, Katelynn’s life ended too soon, but we can honour her life and legacy by ensuring this doesn’t happen to another child,” Steven stated. “We will take the time to fully review all of the jury’s recommendations and continue to work with our members and the sector to improve child safety.”

The ANCFSAO and its members will be providing a more detailed response to the jury’s recommendations upon a full review.
