Jordan's Principle

Jordan's Principle logo

We are an approved physiotherapy provider with Jordan’s Principle. That means we are able to bill directly to the program in order to get children funding for physiotherapy. We are able to get parents in contact with the appropriate people to ensure a smooth process for everyone involved.

What is the Jordan's Principle and how does it help kids get physiotherapy services?

Jordan's Principle makes sure all First Nations children living in Canada can access the products, services and supports they need, when they need them — including physiotherapy!

Jordan's Principle is named in memory of Jordan River Anderson. He was a young boy from Norway House Cree Nation in Manitoba. Learn more about his story.

What is the process for obtaining physiotherapy services through Jordan’s Principle?

If you a suffering from any of the issues listed below you could potentially benefit from pelvic floor rehabilitation:

  1. A parent/guardian will call our clinic to make an appointment. We are here to make things as easy as possible for you!
  2. We work together to find out if the patient is eligible for coverage through Jordan’s Principle by contacting their band’s health centre to confirm eligibility.
  3. The parent/Guardian completes the Jordan’s Principle request form and sends the completed form to the designated party.
  4. The request is sent to the Jordan’s Principle Program Manager for the area, and approval is given.
  5. Treatment starts/continues.
  6. We can help get parents in touch with the appropriate people to get the ball rolling, but it is up to the caregiver to complete the necessary steps to get funding approval.

Physiotherapy expertise you can trust.

Caitlin Milljour’s (nee Trakalo) journey to becoming a physiotherapist started long before she started her Master’s of Physical Therapy degree at the University of Manitoba. In 2008, she was in a devastating quad accident in Corfu, Greece where she broke both of her ankles. The next 4 years involved 4 surgeries to both of her ankles, and extensive physiotherapy. Presently, there are still aches and pains that she has to live with, but she uses her education and positive attitude to ensure the best quality life is had!

Her experiences with being at the lowest low, and successfully overcoming all obstacles provides a very unique and special treatment approach. Outside of her physiotherapy practice, Caitlin enjoys travel, cooking, gardening, photography, skiing and snowboarding.
