Over 3 years ago the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) found that the Government of Canada is racially discriminating against First Nations children and their families.
For 150 years, Canada has provided lower quality and improperly funded public services (such as education, housing, child welfare, and health care) to First Nations children and youth. That’s not okay. It shouldn’t take legal action and five CHRT rulings for First Nations children and youth to be treated with justice and equity.
Stand with Shannen Koostachin, who dreamed of safe and comfy schools and culturally based education for all First Nations children. Stand with Jordan River Anderson, who died while federal and provincial governments fought over who would pay his medical bills. His legacy inspired Jordan's Principle, which ensures First Nations children receive the services they need when they need them.
We’re proud to partner with the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada to recognize Have a Heart Day*.
We stand with Jordan. We stand with Shannen. We stand with First Nations children and youth.
