COHI-Children’s Health Initiative: The Children's Oral Health Initiative (COHI) was developed as a means to address the disparity between the oral health of First Nations and Inuit and that of the general Canadian population. COHI focuses on the prevention of dental disease and promotion of good oral health practices. The goal of COHI is to shift the emphasis from a primarily treatment based approach to a more balanced prevention and treatment focus. The initial focus for oral health promotion will be directed at three target groups: pregnant women and primary caregivers; pre-school children, 0-4 years of age; and school children, 5-7 years of age.                           

Jordan’s Principle: Jordan's Principle is a child-first principle intended to ensure that First Nations children do not experience, delay, denial, or disruption of services that are normally available to all other children. Jordan's Principle makes sure all First Nations children can access the products, services and supports they need, when they need them. It can help with a wide range of health, social and educational needs.

  • Jordan's Principle is named in memory of Jordan River Anderson. He was a young boy from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba.

From July 2016 to April 2018, more than 75,000 requests were approved under Jordan's Principle. These included:

  • respite care

  • speech therapy

  • schooling supports

  • medical equipment

  • mental health services

  • and more

Current projects

Community Garden: A community garden for all members of Wolf Lake First Nation to learn and help grow fresh fruits and vegetables, thus helping provide food security to the members of our community.
