An Indigenous child and family service organization is working on a new service delivery model. Niijaansinaanik Child and Family Services works with six First Nations in the north. It’s new ‘Orange Standard’ delivery model will allow Indigenous peoples to help children in the way they feel is best, moving away from legislation. “What’s going to be better is that it’s going to be the inclusion of the communities, the inclusion of the elderly in the communities, rather than a provincially mandated protection agency,” said Joanne Koehler.
