The purpose of this document is to describe the midwifery scope of practice set out in the Midwifery Act, 1991, its regulations, and other legislation that govern the midwifery profession in Ontario. This document is designed to assist midwives to ensure their practice complies with legislation.
In addition to providing information about scope, this document also provides regulatory guidance to midwives about working within the midwifery scope of practice and what to do when a client’s clinical condition or the care they require is no longer in the midwifery scope of practice.
The Midwifery Scope of Practice is meant to be current, and we anticipate making changes from time to time. We are asking for your feedback on the Midwifery Scope of Practice document so that we can strengthen the document in the future.
The survey takes approximately five minutes to complete. The survey will be open until February 21, 2023.
