About this Event

POSTPONED UNTIL APRIL 7/8 2020

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have decided to postpone this event until April 7/8 2020. Jordan's Principle is an important initiative creating opportunities to address systemic gaps in the health, education, social and cultural sectors. It is important to CYFN to work collaboratively with all of our partners to create community lead solutions to improve the outcomes for First Nation children. Our new date will ensure we can hold these important conversations with of our valued partners.

Please join us for the Jordan’s Principle: Focusing on the Future Symposium at the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre on April 7/8th.

Jordan’s Principle aims to make sure First Nations children can access all public services in a way that is reflective of their distinct cultural needs without experiencing any service denials, delays or disruptions. This includes services related to health, education, language, culture and recreation.

We invite First Nation governments, child focused service providers, and First Nations families, to join us for two days of guest speakers, presentations and knowledge sharing workshops. We will highlight successful programs developed by Yukon First Nations, provide information about the future of Jordan’s Principle, and offer focus groups to better understand the needs of Yukon First Nations children to continue building community based services.

Stay tuned for the detailed agenda that will be posted on this page in the coming weeks!

For questions and other inquiries, contact CYFN staff Chantal O’Brien at jordans.principle@cyfn.net or (867) 393-9200 ext. 9216.
