M’Chigeeng First Nation, February 6, 2024 — M’Chigeeng First Nation is delighted to announce approval of Jordan’s Principle funding in the amount of $ 105 578.00, which will provide invaluable support to our children and youth hockey players. This funding will enable their participation in the upcoming Little Native Hockey League (LNHL) tournament, scheduled to take place from March 10th to March 15th, 2024, in Markham, Ontario. The Goal is to support all M’Chigeeng children playing in Little NHL as well as children/youth that are supporting our community.

Jordan’s Principle has recognized the importance of supporting young athletes from M’Chigeeng, and as a result, has approved the allocation of funds to cover various expenses associated with the LNHL tournament. These approved costs include:

Accommodations                                   $ 800.00           Only 1 accommodation per family unit

Meals ($ 100.00 a day X 4 days).         $ 400.00            2nd or 3rd child will be paid meal money only.

Gas money                                              $ 300.00

Total for a M’Chigeeng registered Child/youth on a M’Chigeeng Roster = $ 1500.00

** Families that have “other” funding opportunities ie) Services covering cost, need to follow a secondary process.**


This funding not only encourages the participation of M’Chigeeng’s young athletes in the LNHL tournament but also reflects the commitment of Jordan’s Principle to ensure equitable opportunities for children and youth in Indigenous communities across Canada.

We are excited to witness our young athletes’ achievements at the LNHL tournament and look forward to their incredible journey in Markham, Ontario.
