Indigenous Students

UBC’s Vancouver campus is located on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. Supporting Indigenous students and Indigenous Midwifery is a priority for UBC. Our Indigenous Student Coordinator, Evelyn George, is an experienced midwife and the Indigenous Lead for the Midwives Association of British Columbia. She’s available to mentor Indigenous students as they grow into midwifery, and holds regular circles and events for Indigenous students. Contact Evelyn here.

UBC Midwifery has a process for designating clinical sites as Indigenous Clinical Sites. UBC’s first designated Indigenous Clinical Site is Access Midwifery on Vancouver Island.
