Closed Public Consultation: General By-law

We are 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to the Ministry of Health requesting that Part II of the General Regulation made under the Midwifery Act, 1991 be rescinded.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 we continue to work with the Ministry on our submission, we 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 This is to ensure that when Part II of the General Regulation is rescinded, the important requirements related to providing information to the public about discipline hearings and College Council meetings do not disappear and continue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.

Below is a comparison table that outlines what information currently exists in the General Regulation and the proposed sections to be added to the General By-law.

Thank you for taking the time to read and provide your comments. We greatly appreciate your participation and contribution to this consultation.
