The College of Midwives of Ontario is grateful that both current and former midwives are asking how they can help during the COVID-19 pandemic. On Friday, the College outlined a plan to help expedite applications from Inactive members wishing to return to the General class. Please review that notice here.
In addition to this, the Ministry of Health is seeking experienced health care providers who are inactive or retired to consider being deployed within the health sector to assist with provincial efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. This employment would not require you to become registered with the College in the General class as you would not be providing midwifery services.
If you are able to use your former clinical experience to support your front-line colleagues in some capacity, please click here to sign up.
All information from the College relating to the COVID-19 pandemic can be found here.
