Jordan’s Principle (www.jordansprinciple.ca) aims to make sure First Nations children can access all public services in a way that is reflective of their distinct cultural needs, takes full account of the historical disadvantage linked to colonization, and without experiencing any service denials, delays or disruptions related to their First Nations status.

It has been 11 years since Jordan’s Principle was unanimously passed in the House of Commons, and two years since the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ordered the federal government to fully implement Jordan’s Principle by May 10, 2016.

In May 2017, the Tribunal issued a third non-compliance order finding Canada’s approach to Jordan’s Principle to be unlawful and discriminatory.

While some progress has been made in the last year, more needs to be done to ensure First Nations children get the help they need, when they need it.

Show your support and “Bear Witness” to Jordan’s Principle Implementation by bringing your bears to daycare, school or work on May 10th. Host a Jordan’s Principle “bear birthday party,” coffee break or lunch to learn more about Jordan’s Principle and to honour Jordan River Anderson!

Find out more about Jordan’s Principle and don’t forget to tweet and post your photos using the hashtags #JordansPrinciple and #BearWitnessDay
