Session: Jordan’s Principal, Child First Initiative: Strengthening the Community Circle of Care for First Nations Children
The purpose of Jordan’s Principle community-based initiatives are to develop community programs that will provide quality services, supports and resources at the community level to achieve the desired holistic outcomes for children and their families living with disabilities. In order to do this, First Nations must lead the work with all stakeholders to provide support, address gaps in service, avoid jurisdictional disputes and improve needed care, while keeping children home in their respective communities.
