On-Reserve Services: Jordan's Principle

About the On-Reserve Services: Jordan's Principle Project (2015-2017): 

Accessing services for children with special needs

This project is the result of collaboration with Pinaymootang First Nation and the First Nations Health and Social Secretariat of Manitoba. Using Pinaymootang as a case study, our goal was to document the difficulties that First Nations children with special needs and their families have to access health and social services ordinarily available to other Canadian children. The final report from this project was released in 2017.
