  3. The College has received the member’s annual fee payment(s).

3. Quality Assurance Program (QAP)

The College’s Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is designed to ensure that the knowledge, skill and judgment of Ontario midwives remains current throughout their careers, and that they continue to provide safe, effective, appropriate and ethical midwifery care to their clients. The QAP is mandated under the Regulated Health Profession’s Act, 1991 (RHPA). The components of the QAP can be found under the Quality Assurance Regulation (O. Reg. 335/12) made under the Midwifery Act, 1991.

The Quality Assurance Program is intended to be supportive in nature. It is meant to promote and enhance members’ understanding of the practice of the profession of midwifery through:

Continuing Education and Professional Development

Peer & Practice Assessment


Reporting QAP Activities
