- your name that differs from the College’s Public Register;
- your residential address, telephone number and personal email address;
- the name, business address and business telephone number of every practice with which you are affiliated, whether as a sole proprietor, a partner, an associate or in some other capacity as a Midwife;
- the name of each hospital, birth centre and health facility in Ontario where you have privileges, as well as the date that each privilege was granted and terminated
This is set out in article 15.06 of the College’s General By-Law.
The College relies on having accurate information about its members so that it can communicate with them effectively and regulate the profession in the public interest. The failure to provide accurate information to the College in a timely fashion may constitute professional misconduct under Ontario Regulation 388/09, made under the Midwifery Act, 1991. For further details about the information that members are required to provide to the College, please refer to Article 15 of the College’s General By-law.
