Report a Jordan's Principle Case

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, takes full account of the historical disadvantage linked to colonization, and without experiencing any service denials, delays or disruptions because they are First Nations.

Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and Health Canada have established regional contacts (called “Focal Points”) to respond to Jordan's Principle cases. For more information:

Phone: 1-855-572-4453

TTY: 1-866-553-0554


If you have any difficulties accessing services through Jordan's Principle, please contact your provincial child advocate or ombudsperson or the 24-hour Jordan's Principle line (above).

For emergencies, please call 911.
