Police said officers responded to a hospital in the city’s west end following a sudden death on March 19.
A toddler was brought to the hospital in medical distress where she was later pronounced dead, investigators said.
Following a post-mortem, done on March 22, which revealed the girl died from blunt force trauma the city’s homicide unit took over the investigation.
On May 11, homicide detectives arrested 28-year-old Rodrigo Flores Romero. He was charged with second-degree murder.
Police told Global News the accused and the toddler were known to each other but would not reveal their relationship.
The little girl’s identity was not released.
