The Canadian Caucus of Queer and Trans Midwives hosts a queer mentorship program to support student midwives in Canada.
We welcome people who self identify as part of the 2SLGBTQQIA spectrum and who are midwifery students or midwives in Canada. We know that individualized mentorship helps to increase retention and graduation, promotes resiliency, and develops professional skills within the varying fields of healthwork.
Primarily this will work as an online/phone mentorship program with each mentor‑mentee pair deciding how and how often they will interact (as frequent as they like, at least once per month). We are available to support with problem solving and guidance! All contact information will remain private among program organizers and the mentor‑mentee pairs.

Applications are accepted on a continuous basis. Once accepted into the program, you will be asked to attend an orientation to understand the expectations of the program.
