The commission said in a press release that it would offer pending “findings and orientations as well as a recommendACTION.”

The commission was launched following the death of a girl in Granby, who was found in troubling circumstances in her family home before her death in April 2019. She had been the subject of reports to the province’s department of youth protection and follow-ups for years.
