The Canadian Midwifery Regulators Consortium has created a website designed to ensure that internationally-educated midwives have access to comprehensive information about registering as a midwife in a Canadian province or territory.

Bridging Education Programs for Internationally Educated Midwives
The Multi-jurisdictional Midwifery Bridging Project (MMBP) is a bridging program for qualified midwives educated outside of Canada. It is designed to help midwives learn how to use their skills in a Canadian context. The MMBP will assist midwives to prepare to meet the requirements for registering and practicing as a midwife in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia or the Northwest Territories.
The International Midwifery Pre-registration Program (IMPP) is a 9-month part-time bridging program for qualified midwives educated outside of Canada and who wish to practice in Ontario. The IMPP is intended for experienced international midwives, fluent in English, who have practised midwifery within the past five years. It is not a re-education or re-training program.
