Hi Kristen, I took my training from LSAR in Ontario. They may be able to hook you up with an organization out west. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm jumping into this discussion really late, but the information is probably still relevant.
I teach the CAPPA doula trainings in BC. If you want more information on the trainings, you can take a look at my website at: www.birth.bc.ca.
There is also a list of ways to train as a doula in BC on the website.
I hope this helps someone!
