Jordan's Principle

SLFNHA has recently been funded through Jordan’s Principle (First Nation Inuit Health Branch) to expand the Complex Care Case Coordinator Program.  This new initiative supports a full delivery of services at SLFNHA will ensure that First Nations children, youth and families in our area have equitable access to needed developmental services.  Our vision for service delivery will also involve the development of a culturally sensitive service model for Normative Rehabilitation Services ensuring that service is culturally safe and utilizes traditional practices.

We are in the early implementation phase of this program as we actively recruit many positions and start to expand services.  The goal of the expanded program is to increase case management support and access to services for community rehabilitative assessments, follow-up care plans, training, community-based worker supports.

SLFNHA will continue to engage with communities to inform the further development of the services delivery model.  The overarching goal of the program will be to provide mobile services as professionals will travel to communities on a regular basis.  The goal of the program is to provide integrated wrap around services to children and youth with the following services:

  • Speech Language Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Rehab Clinic Coordination
  • Community based Rehab Clinic Assistance
  • FASD Clinic Coordination
  • Family Navigation (Intake)
  • Early Language Facilitation
  • Cultural Liaison for FASD team
