The Alberta government has signed an agreement intended to help First Nations children.
The province has signed the memorandum of understanding (MOU) on Jordan’s Principle with the First Nations Health Consortium and the federal government.
The provincial government said the consortium and two governments will work together to co-ordinate services in Alberta, address gaps and share information, so there are no unnecessary delays when a First Nations child needs support.
“Every child deserves the same access to supports, no matter where they live. Whether it’s a car seat, a splint, speech therapy or orthodontic surgery, addressing these needs in a fair and timely manner makes a huge, positive difference in the lives of children and their families,” Children’s Services Minister Danielle Larivee said.
