More people are now entitled to register under the Indian Act If you have a parent, grandparent or ancestor who was affected by sex-based inequities in the Indian Act, you may now be entitled to register. When an entitled woman married a non-entitled man before 1985, she lost her right to registration. That loss also affected her descendants’ rights to registration. Bill S-3 was introduced in an effort to address the impacts of this loss of status for all affected descendants. Please share this poster with your community to help increase awareness of the changes. More information is also available on the ISC website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dream Builder- NLC - Feb 23, 2023
Today marks 18 years since Jordan River Anderson’s passing.
Jordan River Anderson was a young boy from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba who was born in 1999 with multiple disabilities. He lived over two years in a hospital because federal and provincial governments could not agree on who would pay for his at-home care. Unfortunately, Jordan passed away at the age of 5 on February 2, 2005 before he could experience living in a loving home.
Jordan’s passing ignited a movement to uphold human rights for all First Nations children through the creation of the child-first principle called “Jordan’s Principle." Jordan River Anderson's family gifted his name to Jordan's Principle, which now exists to ensure that First Nations children can access the services they need without denial, delay, or disruption
On behalf of the BC Region Jordan’s Principle team, we would like to extend our gratitude for your partnership and dedication to supporting First Nations children, youth and families to access the supports they need when they need them. Jordan's Principle ensures First Nations children can access the products, services and supports they need, when they need them, while we work with First Nations partners, provinces and territories to develop long-term approaches to help better address the unique needs of First Nations children it is in honour of Jordan River Anderson, that we do this work.
