English Language Proficiency

The College of Midwives of BC (CMBC) does not require proof of English proficiency directly from Internationally Educated Midwives (IEMs) who have met the English requirements as determined by their Canadian Midwifery Education Program or bridging program.

If English is not your first or native language and you are already practicing in another Canadian jurisdiction, you will be required to demonstrate and provide evidence to the CMBC Registration Committee of your English language proficiency if you were not required to meet an equivalent requirement to demonstrate proficiency in English in your jurisdiction of origin. Information on how to demonstrate an acceptable level of English language proficiency is available from CMBC.
