Canadian Applicants

Because of our eligibility to enroll international students and our close proximity to Canada, Birthwise Midwifery School has enrolled many Canadian students in our program. If you are Canadian and wish to enroll in our program, we encourage you to visit the Canadian Midwives Association website (  for detailed information on the legal and political status of direct-entry midwifery in your province. Midwifery is a rapidly growing profession in Canada. Legislation and models of midwifery care are diverse across the country. In many provinces there is a mechanism for foreign-trained midwives to become registered in the province.

Birthwise has been approved by the Ontario Student Assistance Program.  If you are a resident of Ontario you may be eligible to receive financial aid for attending Birthwise through the Ontario Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities.
