Jordan's Principle

This infographic was created by the Assembly of First Nations.

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:
Jordan’s Principle, named in honour of Jordan River Anderson, aims to give First Nations children equal and fair access to services ordinarily available to other children and to shield them from jurisdictional disputes. Jordan River Anderson died tragically after spending two and a half years unnecessarily in hospital because government officials could not decide who should pay for his at-home care because he was First Nations.
