Haley Stewart started this petition to Doug Ford

Jordan's Principle was created in 2007 after Jordan River Anderson who was a First Nations child from Norway Cree House Nation in Manitoba passed away. Jordan was born in 1999 with complex medical needs that could not be treated on-reserve, he spent more than two years in a hospital in Winnipeg before doctors agreed that he could leave the hospital to be cared for in a family home. 


However, because of jurisdictional disputes within and between the federal and provincial governments over who would pay costs for in-home care, Jordan spent over two more years in hospital unnecessarily before he tragically died in 2005. He was 5 years old and had never spent a day in a family home.


The unfortunate reality is that there are a lack of resources for Indigenous people on reserves. The Provincial government of Canada was ordered by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to: 

-apply Jordan’s Principle to all First Nations

-children living on and off reserve

-apply Jordan’s Principle based on the needs of the child (not just limited to the normative standard of care);

-ensure that administrative procedures do not delay service provision;

-respond to most cases within 48 hours; and

-non-status First Nations children in urgent

-situations will be covered until the evidence has

-been heard regarding the definition of a First Nations.

However, they have not followed these requests 

 

Join us in our effort in advocating by signing this petition, to get the government to follow through with their orders!
