Call for participants: Canadian Midwifery Registration Examination

Jan 7, 2022

​This message is being shared on behalf of Canadian Midwifery Regulators Council​ (CMRC). Questions should be directed to CMRC.

​Help shape the CMRE and the practice of midwifery in Canada

The Canadian Midwifery Registration Examination (CMRE) has a critical role in ensuring that applicants for midwifery registration meet an acceptable level of competence for practice in Canada. The CMRE regularly undergoes review and further development to ensure its continued validity and reflection of the expectations of an entry-level midwife in Canada. 

The Canadian Midwifery Regulators Council (CMRC) seeks applications from midwives interested in contributing their time, skills, and expertise to develop test questions, validate items, or participate in standard setting.  

Qualifications and Requ​​irements

Successful applicants will have:

  • A minimum of five years of experience as a registered midwife in Canada
  • A record of good standing with their regulatory authority (College)
  • No finding(s) at a discipline hearing, or equivalent
  • Recent clinical practice within the past three years
  • Demonstrated aptitude for evidence-based practice
  • Comprehensive knowledge of Canadian midwifery and obstetrical clinical practice guidelines
  • Ability to collaborate and work as a team member
  • Willingness to participate in workshop sessions for 2-5 days per year (in person or virtual)

 Previous test development experience is not required.  Successful applicants will be provided with training and support. Knowledge of regulatory issues is desirable, but not mandatory. 

We seek applicants with a variety of expertise and from different backgrounds to ensure good representation of all aspects of midwifery in Canada.  We are particularly interested in ensuring good representation across Anglophone and Francophone midwives, geographic areas, and Canadian and international midwifery education. If you identify with any equity-seeking group, we encourage you to self-identify. The CMRE respects diversity and inclusion and strives to reflect the diverse cultures, family arrangements and expressions of gender that Canadians exhibit and value.    

Benefits of In​volvement

  • Excellent networking opportunities
  • Opportunities to enhance your knowledge and midwifery practice
  • Recognition as a valuable contributor to the CMRE and midwifery practice in Canada
  • Paid travel (if required) and daily stipend for participating in workshops and virtual work
