What is Jordan’s Principle?
The Jordan’s Principle workers are responsible to coordinate services for children and families within the seven First Nation communities who require services in accordance with the Jordan’s Principle directives funded by Department of Indigenous Services Canada. The Jordan’s Principle workers will work collaboratively with the First Nations and external services to ensure First Nation children are funded for appropriate services in a way that is reflective of their distinct cultural needs and that meets the children’s complex needs.
Our team can assist children and their families/caregivers to navigate the administrative process and apply for a variety of products and services including but not limited to sports registration fees, sports equipment, music lessons, daycare fees, transportation costs, summer camps, autism services, furniture, furnaces, vehicles, assessments, school supplies, assisted devices, new clothes, and family court legal fees. We have also assisted one community school with a group application for a new bus.
