Child Abuse Prevention &
Strengthening Families Toolkit
The Middlesex-London Community Plan was developed in 2001 in response to the recommendations of the Jury Inquest into the death of five week old Jordan Heikamp who died of chronic starvation in a Toronto shelter for abused women.
Key to the recommendations was the need to prioritize infant needs in service delivery and establish strong and effective inter-agency collaboration around service coordination and planning to promote the optimal safety, growth and development of infants under the age of 24 months who had been identified as living in high risk environments. It was a way of trying to ensure that no more babies fell through the cracks in the system and supported accountability of service providers to work in the best interests of infants and their caregivers.
