I was looking into going back to school to be a midwife and saw that Canada has a 4 year degree in midwifery. How would a US citizen get into a college like this? Any suggestions? We would be willing to move to Canada to accomplish this.

From what I have heard, it is next to impossible for even Canadians to get into those schools. You can always call the school and ask about the application process.

There is also a program at the university of british columbia.

If I remember correctly at the interview they do ask you if you intend to practice in Ontario and where.

The programme is subsidised by the ontario government so there is motivation to admit those students who are planning to practice here. tuition is also alot more if you are a foreign student.

It does take alot of applicants more then once try to get in as there are only four schools in all of Canada, each accepting about twenty students a year.

Best of luck to you on your path.

I dont see why you would want to move to Canada for one of these programs. There are many excellent midwifery programs in the states. I moved FROM Canada to the states to do one of the programs down here. Birthingway college in Portland (where I applied)provides a Bachelors degree in midwifery.
Those schools in Canada are extremely hard to get into and I tend to agree they would be even more challenging for a US citizen to get into. The US is full of great diverse schools!

And if you have plans to become a Canadian midwife, you can gain your education in the US and then apply to their bridge program.
