The CHRT released a ruling on the groups of children eligible to receive services through Jordan's Principle. Canada has been ordered to immediately consider eligible for services through Jordan's Principle:

  • First Nations children who will become eligible for Indian Act registration/status under S-3 implementation.

The CHRT found two other categories of First Nations children who will be eligible in the future following a further order from the CHRT:

  •  First Nations children without Indian Act status who are recognized as citizens or members of their respective First Nations; and
  • First Nations children who do not have Indian Act status and who are not eligible for Indian Act status, but have a parent/guardian with, or who is eligible for, Indian Act status.
