It is the preferred collective name for the original people of Canada and their descendants. This includes First Nations (status and non-status), Métis and Inuit. It is important to remember that each Indigenous nation in the larger category of “Indigenous” has its own unique name for its community (e.g., Cree, Ojibwa, Inuit). Jordan’s Principle Jordan’s Principle ensures all First Nations children living in Canada can access the products, services, and supports they need, when they need them. Funding can help with a wide range of health, social and educational needs, including the unique needs that First Nations Two-Spirit and LGBTQQIA children and youth and those with disabilities may have. Jordan’s Principle is named in memory of Jordan River Anderson. He was a young boy from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba.
