Closed Public Consultation: Fee and Remuneration By-law 2019
Note: This public consultation is now closed.
The College of Midwives of Ontario’s Council has proposed changing the Fees and Remuneration By-law to raise membership fees from $2193 to $2550 for all classes of registration other than Inactive. This represents a $357 increase effective October 2019 registration renewal. The Inactive class of registration will not be affected by these changes, and will increase at 2%, as per the existing by-law.
The College’s Council has approved a deficit budget for 2019-2020 and projects two additional deficit budget years before our revenue equals our expenses. A combination of increased membership fees, operational expense cuts, and the use of the College’s existing net assets will allow us to achieve financial sustainability. The College will continue to ensure that midwifery care in Ontario is provided safely, by skilled and qualified midwives.
We invite midwives, stakeholders, and members of the public to comment on the proposed changes to the Fees and Remuneration By-law below. Council will consider your feedback and make a final decision at its June 26, 2019 meeting.
Our consultation is open until Thursday, May 30, 2019 and all members of the public, stakeholders, and midwives are invited to share their thoughts below. Click here to review the College’s posting guidelines in advance of leaving a comment.
Please note that all comments are reviewed by College staff prior to being posted online. This is to ensure that the College’s posting guidelines are being adhered to.
