Jordan’s Principle “Still Not Filling the Gaps” Webinar

Jordan's Principle is a child-first principle to ensure First Nations children get the services they need when they need them. The CHRT has ordered Canada to implement the full meaning and scope of Jordan's Principle, but children are still waiting for the services they need. The Caring Society has documented numerous ongoing challenges that children and families face when trying to access Jordan's Principle funding, including: lengthy delays in determining requests, including in urgent cases; lengthy delays in funding approved requests; phone calls and information requests that go unanswered; unreasonable eligibility criteria; unreasonable application requirements.
