The Canadian Midwifery Registration Exam (CMRE) is a national written examination designed to assess applicants for midwifery registration to ensure that they meet entry-level competency standards set out in the Canadian Competencies for Midwives. Its goal is to ensure that midwives entering midwifery practice are competent and safe practitioners providing a consistent standard of care across Canada.

The location of Ontario exam sites will be provided before the registration deadline. The exam registration fee is $750. Comprehensive information about the exam (including complete registration timelines and details, study tips, reference texts and practice exams) is available on the Canadian Midwifery Regulators Consortium (CMRC) website. Please note that For CMRE applications, the College of Midwives of Ontario only accepts payment by money order, certified cheque, or bank draft, payable to the College of Midwives of Ontario.
