Jordan River Anderson (1999-2005)
From the Government of Canada website listed below,
"Jordan was born in 1999 with multiple disabilities and stayed in the hospital from birth.
When he was 2 years old, doctors said he could move to a special home for his medical needs. However, the federal and provincial governments could not agree on who should pay for his home-based care.
Jordan stayed in the hospital until he passed away at the age of 5.
In 2007, the House of Commons passed Jordan's Principle in memory of Jordan. It was a commitment that First Nations children would get the products, services and supports they need, when they need them. Payments would be worked out later.
Today, Jordan's Principle is a legal obligation, which means it has no end date. While programs and initiatives to support it may only exist for short periods of time, Jordan's Principle will always be there. Jordan's Principle will support First Nations children for generations to come.
This is the legacy of Jordan River Anderson."
Children's Therapy Collective has extensive experience working with individuals, families, and organizations that access funding under Jordan's Principle. We are deeply passionate about upholding the values and intentions of Jordan's Principle, ensuring that all children and youth have equitable access to the essential services and support they deserve.
Our commitment to providing high-quality services align with the principles of inclusivity, cultural sensitivity, and empowerment that Jordan's Principle embodies. By working collaboratively with our clients and partners, we strive to create a nurturing and inclusive environment where the needs of children and youth are prioritized and supported.
There are many places that families can access allied health services through Jordan's Principle funding, not just with CTC. For more information about Jordan's Principle, visit https://www.sac-isc.gc.ca/eng/1568396042341/1568396159824
