Engaging Indigenous families in a community-based Indigenous early childhood programme in British Columbia, Canada: A cultural safety perspective focuses on the Aboriginal Infant Development Program (AIDP) located in British Columbia. This article, based on research conducted by authors Drs. Gerlach, Browne, and Greenwood, looks at the AIDP workers’ understandings of the intergenerational and socio-historical reasons underpinning Indigenous families concerns for engaging with the programme, as well as the adaptations to policies and practices made by AIDP workers to improve this engagement.
