 We are a Jordan's Principle vendor. 
 What is Jordan's Principle? 

 Jordan's Principle makes sure all First Nations children living in Canada can access the products, services  and supports they need, when they need them. Funding can help with a wide range of health, social and  educational needs, including the unique needs that First Nations Two-Spirit and LGBTQQIA children and youth  and those with disabilities may have. Jordan's Principle is named in memory of Jordan River Anderson. He  was a young boy from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba. (https://www.sac-isc.gc.ca)
