Funded midwifery care should be on the “Great Canadian Wish List”

30 May

To recognize Canada’s 140th anniversary, CBC is doing a special called The Great Canadian Wish List . They are asking Canadians to put wishes for Canada on Facebook and then gather supporters. CBC News will be following the discussions on Facebook, and reporting about the people behind the wishes on CBC TV, CBC Radio, CBC Newsworld and online at As Canada Day approaches, they’ll summarize the top ideas from Facebook, and come up with "The Great Canadian Wish List" just in time for July 1st.

A wish for funded midwifery across Canada has been added. It would be really great if we could get a lot of people supporting this. Not only would the media coverage be useful to our campaign in the Yukon, it could also help other provinces that are working towards integration of midwifery into the health care system.

Please pass this message on to any Canadians you know! If you are not a member of Facebook it is easy to join; just go to
