Welcome to “the Hub”
The Jordan’s Principle Enhanced Service Coordination (ESC) Hub for British Columbia (BC) or “the Hub” is hosted by the BC Aboriginal Child Care Society (BCACCS) and delivered in partnership with Indigenous Services Canada (ISC).
The Hub provides a centralized support network for Jordan’s Principle Service Coordinators working across the province. Service Coordinators are based in community and work directly with children and families to help access existing products, services, and supports, and to submit Jordan’s Principle and Inuit Child First Initiative requests where appropriate.
What is Jordan’s Principle?
Jordan’s Principle is a child-first principle, named in memory of Jordan River Anderson, a young boy from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba, to ensure First Nations children get the services they need when they need them.
Requests for funding under Jordan’s Principle 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 those with disabilities may have.
To learn more about how to access funding through Jordan’s Principle and the Inuit Child First Initiative, or get help making a request, please contact a Jordan’s Principle Service Coordinator.
What services are eligible for funding under Jordan’s Principle?
Services and products eligible for funding include, but are not limited to, health, social/cultural, and educational supports.
How to make a Jordan’s Principle Request in BC
