Important Jordan’s Principle Notice!

April 10, 2019

It has come to the Union of Nova Scotia Indians’ attention that an organization, Arden Professional Client Care, is claiming to offer Jordan’s Principle services while using recorded CBC interviews (featuring UNSI Jordan’s Principle staff) on its website.

The CBC interviews were conducted with UNSI Jordan’s Principle staff, who are NOT affiliated with Arden PCC in any form.

The UNSI felt that it was in our best interest, and also in the interest of our clients, partners, our member bands, to address this issue and any claims made by Arden PCC.  This issue is also being looked into by Health Canada.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Jordan’s Principle staff at any time.  Wela’lio’q and thank you.
