This spring, the College is holding public consultations on changes to our Fees and Remuneration By-law, and our General By-law.
Fees and Remuneration By-law
This March, the College of Midwives of Ontario Council proposed changes to our Fees and Remuneration By-law that includes a registration fee increase. If approved, this increase would bring the fees to $2150 for general class of registration and $1075 for inactive class of registration, effective for this year’s renewal. Fees would then increase by inflation, at 2% per year.
While this was not an easy decision for Council, it is necessary in order for the College to continue fulfilling its mandate of public protection and meeting the cost of regulation.
We also are proposing changes to the way we process payments made in instalments, and have provided more information on our website here.
Our consultation is open until June 3rd, 2018, and all members of the public, stakeholders, and midwives are invited to share their thoughts. You can find more information and a space to leave comments here.
Changes to the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) made in May 2017 have necessitated changes to our College’s General By-law. While our public register is in compliance with the RHPA as mandated by Bill 87 our General by-law needs to be amended to reflect the current legislation. You can click here for more information on the changes that Bill 87 brought to our public register.
In addition to the necessary changes above, Council is proposing some additional changes and edits that are not related to Bill 87, as these further changes are also appropriate at this time.
All of the proposed changes amend Article 14 of the College’s General By-law, entitled “The Register.”
We have provided additional information on these changes on our website here. Our consultation is open until June 3rd, and all members of the public, stakeholders, and midwives are invited to share their thoughts on the changes to Article 14 of the College’s General By-Law here.
