About Emilie Ouellette



My interest in midwifery care intensified during my pregnancies and sparked a profound interest in becoming a midwife. Midwifery combines my passion for health and social equity and fulfills my desire to belong to a community. I value the empowerment of parents in making informed decisions.

My background is filled with non-conventional life experiences. I grew up as a francophone in eastern Canada, and I have now called British-Columbia home for around 20 years. I experienced leadership, teamwork, and tenacity through years of supervising tree planters. Together with travelling, I learned to navigate cultural differences and developed a yearning for equity. I strengthened this awareness by returning to school and studying health, communication, and social issues. Finally, raising my two children on my own and overcoming adversity has taught me to be more patient, aware, and determined. I intend to collaborate with parents by listening, supporting and building connections with enthusiasm, mindfulness, and inclusivity.

I am forever grateful to live and connect on the traditional unceded territory of the Lekwungen Nation and Coast Salish people. I am always looking for ways to further decolonized my perspectives and learn more about traditional Indigenous knowledge. I love to spend any of my spare time in nature with my family and friends. I wholeheartedly feel like the best guidance I can share with my children is the love of mother earth and identifying ways to best care for her and the people around us.
