Notice of Elections
The College of Midwives of Ontario will be holding Council elections from June 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021, to fill two vacancies for professional member positions. Each term consists of a duration of three years. The next term will begin October 5, 2021.
Call for Nominations
The College’s Council makes regulatory decisions in the public interest. In order to make decisions truly reflective of the interests of all Ontarians, we require the expertise and perspectives of individuals with a variety of experiences that represent a range of communities. We recognize that currently, there is a lack of diverse representation in the composition of our Council.
We are particularly encouraging midwives from Indigenous, Black and racialized communities, marginalized communities, rural communities, as well as midwives who are internationally educated, or practising in expanded, collaborative and/or community health team models to run for election.
It is a very exciting time to join the Council, as the College is embarking on a new strategic plan approved by Council in March 2021 which identifies the key priorities and initiatives that the College will be focused on over the next five years. Read the Strategic Plan 2021-2026 to learn more.
If you are considering putting your name forward for election, please save the date for our upcoming lunch and learns, one on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at 12 p.m. and one reserved for midwives from Indigenous, Black and racialized communities to be held on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 12 p.m. More information on these webinars will be available soon.
The College is also committed to accessibility and reducing barriers to participation. If you are an individual who may require accommodation to participate in the election process or upon election to Council, please select the option to request support available on the nomination form.
For more information about the election process, eligibility, and nominations including nomination forms see the 2021 Elections Guide.
