College of Midwives of Ontario:

General By-Law

The College of Midwives of Ontario is inviting comments on the proposed changes to the College’s General By-law.

In 2017, the College made a submission to the Ministry of Health requesting that Part II of the General Regulation made under the Midwifery Act, 1991 be rescinded.

As the College continues to work with the Ministry on our submission, they propose to add certain pieces of information from the General Regulation to the College’s General By-law. This is to ensure that when Part II of the General Regulation is rescinded, the important requirements related to providing information to the public about discipline hearings and College Council meetings do not disappear and continue to exist in other College documents.
