Within the constraints of competing ideologies; Indigenous vs Western knowledge, health service leaders committing to embedding cultural safety and humility into health care services for Indigenous peoples, and the broader change of direction laid out by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (2015), is the overall need to improve health care services, experiences, and outcomes of Indigenous peoples. This need includes increasing the number of Indigenous peoples working at all levels and disciplines in health, and signifies the organizations responsibility to retain those employees once they enter the system. A mainstream tertiary health care centre located in Western Canada is embarking on this journey, heeding the call to action in the spirit of reconciliation, to lead in answering the problem of practice statement “How can a mainstream tertiary health care centre in Western Canada provide a safe workplace culture to ensure -retention of Indigenous employees”.
