Together with BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC), BCAPOP is hosting the Indigenous Birthworkers Forum, an event for self-identifying Indigenous individuals, who are birthworkers. The forum has been developed by the BCAAFC alongside an Advisory Committee of self-identifying Indigenous Birthworkers.
