Full Time Locum to possible permanent Privileges

Website Canopy Midwives

Canopy Midwives is expanding!

Canopy Health is a busy North Vancouver multidisciplinary practice with long client waitlists and are looking for some additional help while we grow! We are seeking 1-2 full-time locums with the possibility of ongoing work as the clinic expands. We have recently acquired ownership of the existing space and are moving the clinic toward building a vibrant multidisciplinary clinic that includes Midwifery care, Nurse Practitioners, and Allied health with a focus on perinatal care. 

Our team is currently a team of 4 midwives where we share call/clinic/time off equally. In the coming months we are hoping to move to two teams, composed of 2-4 midwives on each team. One additional midwife is currently on maternity leave and may be returning in July 2024. However, as one of only two practices that provide intrapartum care on the North Shore the midwifery population is chronically undeserved and we are hoping to alleviate some of the waitlists by expanding.

Our team holds privileges at Lion’s Gate Hospital, which is an extremely collaborative hospital, where we enjoy very good relationships with our consultants, our nurses, and family doctors. Locums are generally easily, and well integrated into the unit and become part of the team.

We have great support for planned home birth from our hospital staff and provide back up for our own teammates when we can. We are also in the process of creating a post partum team that will support our intrapartum midwives when they are occupied at a delivery.

The ideal candidate would have good organizational skills, a strong work ethic and be familiar with/willing to learn OSCAR EMR. The hospital has moved to electronic charting through the use of CERNER, and learning this system is provided through the hospital for locums. We do have the support of front desk staff, and with the acquisition of the practice, support to RM’s administratively is changing. 

The North Shore is a lovely urban community that is geographically small enough to get through several home visits in the morning & while being developed  enough that we enjoy great restaurants, coffee shops, and amenities. We are home to three amazing ski hills, tons of trails for biking and hiking and near to the ocean for paddling and swimming. 

If you are interested in applying for this position, please send your CV and cover letter to  We are hoping to have a start date as soon as possible and will consider any applications until the positions are filled.
