Currently, two positions are available. Please see the attached job posting of the Urban Indigenous Community Midwifery Outreach Program and note the closing date.
The Department of Midwifery has made available two sets of dual privileges (BCWH and SPH) to support midwifery care for the Indigenous community. The Urban Indigenous Midwifery Outreach Program (UIMOP) provides holistic midwifery care while working in relationship with Indigenous individuals, families, and communities in a culturally safe and respectful manner.
Currently, the Urban Indigenous Midwifery Outreach Program has partnered with Urban Native Youth Association Health and Wellness Centre (UNYA), Lu’ma Medical Centre (LMC) and Kilala Lelum (Urban Indigenous Health and Healing Cooperative (UIHHC)). UNYA functions as a place-based storefront for increased and improved access to a dynamic range of health and mental health services for urban Indigenous youth ages 12-24 years. To ensure accessibility for youth, operating hours include afternoons and evenings for scheduled appointments, drop-ins, workshops, and other supportive programming. LMC provides culturally safe healthcare to children, youth and families. LMC strives for excellence in culturally integrated primary health care that is accessible for families. They provide the conditions urban Indigenous peoples need to improve health and wellbeing.

The Urban Indigenous Midwifery Outreach Program is continuing to grow, expand and partner with other allied health organizations in Vancouver to further the care of the families we serve.
The goal of the UIMOP is to collaborate with community partners to reach as many Indigenous families as possible. This increases access to health services in both a timely, inclusive and holistic manner through the provision of on-site clinical care. There is primary care, midwifery care, elder support, counselling services and other allied health programming and support readily available as part of this program.
Designated hospital privileges will only be available while working with the Indigenous Urban Midwifery Outreach Program. Should the midwives relationship with UIMOP cease, hospital privileges will be rescinded. Successful candidates will be required to sign an agreement to this effect upon receipt of medical staff privileges.

We are looking for a locum to join our shared care practice in Mission which is in the heart of the Fraser Valley--close to Vancouver, the US border, and endless recreational opportunities. The dates of the locum would be September 1, 2020, to September 1, 2021. New grads are welcome to apply.
Mission is a wonderful place to live and work, with a small town feel but with easy access to the city an hour away. You will be joining 3 other full-time midwives to work as a team of 4. We work as a shared care group, booking on average 4 births per month per midwife. This model allows ample off call time to explore the area, spend more time with family, or whatever your heart would like to do!
Our clinic is located in the heart of downtown Mission in a restored heritage house, with excellent administration support. We use electronic charting, and an answering service which makes switching call very easy.
We attend hospital births at Abbotsford Regional Hospital which was built in 2008 and features single-room maternity care and 3 tub rooms. We have 24 hour OB and Pediatric availability at our Level 2 hospital, and are lucky to have excellent relationships with our OB and Pediatrician colleagues as well as our nursing staff. As well, we are very committed to having a fun, fair and supportive environment between ourselves as midwives--this job can be stressful enough, am I right? We strive to make sure all the midwives in the group feel valued and supported.
Mission is located on the north side of the Fraser River in the Central Fraser Valley, an outdoor paradise surrounded by mountains, forests, and lakes. There are plentiful trails for hiking or mountain biking, where you can be rewarded by magical views of the Fraser River and the majestic Mt. Baker watching over us. We are lucky to be surrounded by farmland and get to enjoy fresh bounty through local markets and restaurants.
