About this consultation:
On February 3, the College launched a consultation process proposing significant changes to the Registration Regulation under the Midwifery Act, 1991. We thank you for your comments and submitted changes to the Ministry on May 1, 2023.
The College has reviewed all of the feedback we received from registrants and stakeholders in our prior consultation. We are now requesting your feedback on one additional change.
We are proposing to add a new registration requirement as follows:
Applicants must provide satisfactory evidence of competency in fetal surveillance
This new requirement would be included in the Registration Regulation and would only take effect when individuals initially apply to the College at the time of entry into practise.
The rationale for adding the requirement is directly tied to the College’s main mandate to protect the public: fetal health surveillance is a core function in the practice of midwifery, and it is not sufficiently covered in the courses currently required for registration (neonatal resuscitation, emergency skills, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation)
