Accessing Jordan’s Principle
Jordan’s Principle is a child-first principle ensuring First Nations children get the services they need when they need them.
* Published on May 24, 2020
Jordan’s Principle makes sure all Indigenous children living in Canada can access the products, services and supports they need, when they need them. Developed by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT), this legal requirement states that any public service ordinarily available to all other children must be made available to First Nations children without delay or denial.
Funding can help with a wide range of health, social and educational needs, including the unique needs that First Nations Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ children and youth and those with disabilities may have.
