Bear Bear Day: Jordan’s Principle and the Promotion of Indigenous Rights

Bear Bear Day: Jordan’s Principle and the Promotion of Indigenous Rights
Bear Bear Day: Jordan’s Principle and the Promotion of Indigenous Rights

May 10, Bear Witness Day, highlights the importance of Jordan’s Principle, named in memory of Jordan River Anderson. This principle requires that all First Nations children have the same access to social, educational and health services as other children in the country.

Pooh Day calls on us to ensure that Jordan’s Principle is fully implemented and ensure that First Nations children receive the services and supports they need.

In a historic decision rendered this year, the Supreme Court of Canada upheld the merits of the Act respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis children, youth and families, thereby solidifying Canada’s commitment to justice and equality for indigenous communities. This decision represents a decisive victory for child protection and supports initiatives to provide equitable treatment and opportunities for all Indigenous children.

Demonstrate your support

PSAC invites its members to take part in activities that promote reconciliation and equity.

You can, among other things, support the work of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada by writing to your MP to ask them to support the Spirit Bear Plan, thanks to which we could end to the injustices experienced by First Nations children and families living on reserves and territories.

Visit the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada website to find out how to mark Bear Bear Day with information, awareness and action.
