FNHA now administering Jordan’s Principle in BC
The First Nations Health Authority is now administering Jordan’s Principle cases in British Columbia. The change comes from an administrative arrangement with the Government of Canada. Jordan’s principle was put into place to prevent First Nations children from being denied or experiencing delays in receiving health services. Examples of health and social services that may be covered under Jordan’s Principle include: home support and personal care, in-home nursing care, in-home respite, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, meal programs, attendant care services, and minor home maintenance related to accessibility (among others). First Nations children ages 0-19 are eligible for Jordan's Principle services.
