Here at Skatin Nations, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
Within the CCP handbook, you will find Planning in Action pages where individual First Nations share their stories about how they approached planning in their communities, their challenges and successes, and their results.

Accessing Jordan’s Principle
Jordan’s Principle is a legal requirement resulting from the Orders of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) and is not a policy or program.
Jordan’s Principle is a child-first principle that aims to eliminate service inequities and delays for First Nations children. Jordan’s Principle states that any public service ordinarily available to all other children must be made available to First Nations children without delay or denial.
Jordan’s Principle is named in honour of Jordan River Anderson, a young First Nations boy from Norway House Cree Nation in northern Manitoba, who spent his entire life in hospital while caught in a jurisdictional dispute between the governments of Canada and Manitoba, which both refused to pay for the in-home medical care necessary for Jordan to live in his home and community.

BC Elders’ Guide
The First Nations Health Authority and Province of B.C. are pleased to share the 2014 BC Elders’ Guide. The purpose of the Guide is to make sure that Elders, their families, and caregivers have access to information about the programs, services, and resources they need.
Elders play a pivotal role in the health and wellness of our communities. Elders are sought out for guidance and advice. Today, it is more important than ever that Elders are supported to live long and healthy lives and to provide guidance and support for the next generation.
