Midwife trained outside of Canada

If you are a midwife who was trained outside of Canada, you must submit your file to the Ordre des sages-femmes du Québec (OSFQ).

For all the details, consult the “Graduates from outside Canada (and other countries)” section of the OSFQ website.


Training in obstetrical emergencies (TOE) organized by the RSFQ is recognized by the Ordre des Sages-Femmes du Québec (OSFQ). It is open to all midwives or future midwives, whether or not they are members of the RSFQ, with or without an OSFQ permit.

Find the entire RSFQ training offer in our Training section.


Our Careers section brings together all postings for midwives, midwifery service managers and project managers and is regularly updated.
