Governance Education Modules

The Governance Education Modules (GEM) are online training modules that provide an introduction to governance as it applies to the regulation of the midwifery profession in Ontario. These modules are open to anyone (public or professional) who are interested in understanding the role of the College.

There are three modules that each have their own learning themes. The first module focuses on the legislation and regulations that provide the governance framework for regulating midwifery as a profession, the second module focuses on the College as a regulatory institution, and the last module focuses on the role of the College Council and its Committees.

The Governance Manual is provided as a learning aid to accompany the GEMs. The manual provides an overview of Governance, what it means, and what purpose it serves to regulate midwifery by the College of Midwives of Ontario. Click here to access a copy.

Members may complete the modules and use them towards their Quality Assurance Program (QAP) continuing education requirements. Members can use the completion quiz for each module as proof for QAP.
