Jordan’s Story



Jordan River Anderson was a First Nations child from Norway Cree House Nation in Manitoba.

He was born in 1999 with complex medical needs that could not be treated on-reserve. Since the provincial and federal governments could not agree on who would cover the costs for Jordan’s in-home care, he was unnecessarily kept in the hospital for over two years.

He passed away in 2005, never having the opportunity to live with his family and loved ones in his community.
