College of Midwives of British Columbia

Welcome Internationally Educated Midwives

All internationally-educated midwives (IEMs) who want to register to practice in BC must complete UBC's Internationally Educated Midwifery Bridging Program (IEMBP). The IEMBP supports midwives who have been educated outside of Canada in making the transition to working in the Canadian health care system and in the BC model of midwifery.

For details about practicing midwifery in British Columbia see Practicing in BC.
