Transitional Certificate Application – Transitional Applicants OnlyWhy would I need a Letter of Professional Conduct (LOPC)?
Letter of Professional Conduct
A Letter of Professional Conduct issued by the College of Midwives of Ontario verifies the registration of a midwife, including current registration status. See form for further details of information provided.

Letter of Standing and Professional Conduct
A Letter of Standing and Professional Conduct issued by the College of Midwives of Ontario verifies the registration of a midwife, including current registration status, to a Canadian midwifery regulator.
Such a letter is required by a Canadian midwifery regulator for the purposes of and in support of a registration application as a midwife outside of Ontario and within Canada. All regulated midwifery jurisdictions in Canada use the same template for Letters of Standing and Professional Conduct.

Why would I need to submit a Name Change form?
According to the College By-Laws, members are required to inform and register a name change with the College within 14 days of the change occurring. An administration fee of $100.00 is applied for changing a member’s certificate name as it appears on the Public Register and in the College records. (General By-Law, Article 14.06; Fee Remuneration By-law, Article 12.8)
Please note that, until a name change is registered with the College, members must continue to practise in the name on the Public Register. It is considered an act of professional misconduct for a member to practise under a name not on the Public Register (Professional Misconduct Regulation).
