Aboriginal Infant Development and Aboriginal Supported Child Development Provincial Office:
The office of the Provincial Advisor for Aboriginal Infant Development Programs (AIDP) was established in 2002 to provide leadership, support and guidance to Aboriginal Infant Development Programs in BC. As the number of new Aboriginal Supported Child Development Programs was increasing across BC, the need for provincial coordination and support was recognized by the Ministry of Child and Family Development. Responding, MCFD provided funding in April 2010, and the Provincial AIDP Office was expanded to include the Provincial Advisor for Aboriginal Supported Child Development Programs. The AIDP & ASCD Provincial office is located in Victoria, BC and hosted by the BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC). The AIDP Provincial Advisor and AIDP/ASCD Office Administration are located in the Victoria office.
Jackie Watts is the ASCD Provincial Advisor, and works from a remote office in Port Alberni, B.C
