YMCA Statement re: Benjamin Faulkner

After first being contacted by a detective from the Toronto Police Service in 2016, we learned of the investigation and subsequent arrest and conviction of Benjamin Faulkner in relation to illegal acts he had committed while living in the USA. He was a former employee whose job with the YMCA of North Bay ended in 2014. We were shocked and disturbed to hear of the charges and cooperated fully with the police investigation.

Our hearts go out to all of the children and families who were affected by these horrendous crimes.

As an organization we remain strongly committed to the safety and well-being of the children in our care, and have comprehensive policies and practices that are always a top priority.
