Summer On Call – Active Practice Requirements

July 17, 2020

Note: This article was originally published in our Summer 2020 edition of our On Call newsletter, and has not been updated.

If you are in the General class, you are required to actively practise midwifery to maintain currency and the ability to practise in all birth settings (out-of-hospital and hospital). Members are required to report based on the births they attended between  July 1, 2019, and June 30, 2020.

If you have been inactive during the reporting period July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020, and/or continue to hold an Inactive certificate, you are still required to submit a report and enter zero where applicable.

In order to meet the requirements in the Registration Regulation, members must meet the following minimum birth numbers when they are next due to meet APR:

APR due dates are communicated to members in the APR tab of the Member Portal.
