Hi, I would like to help my 22-year old brother, who just graduated as a nurse, and a 28-year old sister, a registered midwife in the Philippines- to immigrate and work here in BC. Here are their infos: *Brother -single -graduated as a nurse -will get the result of his registration board exam in Manila next month *Sister -graduated 2-year midwifery with honours on 2006 (top of her class, clinical proficiency and Madonna award) -Top 5 (National) in board exam -current job title is Nursing Aid in a government hospital in Philippines, although she's performing as midwife because the one directly assisting the birth. Apparently, registered midwives in the Philippines should start as NA and wait for about 3 promotions to be a "midwife" (that will take years- unbelievable...). I'll very much appreciate some advise/tips on how to get them to Canada, the fastest (legal) way possible. I already inquired with the BC College of Midwives and College of Nursing (regulatory boards), they suggest to go through the registration process (bridging programs for midwife) here in BC... but might take at least a year or two to complete the process. My husband and I are permanent residents in BC since 2006. We don't have any relatives here and so we miss them a lot.
