Cindy Blackstock, the leading advocate in the fight for First Nations families to receive medical benefits similar to children live off the reserves says she has seen an improvement to how Canada handles Jordan’s Principle cases.

Jordan’s Principle is a program where a child in need is provided the services they need – and then Canada and the jurisdiction negotiate on who pays the bill.

Until very recently, the federal government denied there were any Jordan’s Principle cases anywhere in the country.

While things are changing, Blackstock says there is a way to go before there is equality.
