2016 – 2017 Annual Report

We are pleased to present our 2016-2017 College of Midwives of Ontario Annual Report.

In the last fiscal year, we created and adopted new strategic framework to guide the College’s work from 2017 to 2020.  We defined our mission, our vision, strategic priorities, our guiding principles, and identified the outcomes we expect to achieve in the interest of fulfilling our public interest mandate.  Our strategic framework and our strategic plan are detailed in our report.

Our priorities for the coming three years are the modernization of legislation and regulation, the implementation of risk-based regulation, and public participation and engagement.  We have started by reviewing all legislation and regulations that define and form the practice and regulation of midwifery to ensure we are responsive and effective.  Modernization of our legislation and regulations will improve the client experience in the health care system.

We have developed risk-based regulation framework, and successfully implemented core aspects of risk-based regulation. Regulating in a new way, focusing on risks and outcomes rather than compliance with detailed rules has been a significant change, and we have been deliberately ambitious in the scope of our regulatory transformations.

At the College, we are proud of the work we have done over this past year.  We believe that our commitment to our mandate of regulating midwifery in accordance with the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, and our dedication to protecting the public are evident throughout this report, and we hope that you find it informative.  Click here to read our 2016-2017 Annual Report.
