Jordan's Principle

Jordan's Principle is a child-first principle intended to ensure that First Nations children do not experience, delay, denial, or disruption of services that are normally available to all other children. A Members Motion (M-296) endorsing the adoption of Jordan's Principle was unanimously passed in the House of Commons in 2007. One area in which Jordan's Principle applies is in the area of child welfare services.
