COVID-19 Information to the Public


The CMA continues to monitor the pandemic situation carefully and make adjustments as appropriate. As clients of midwifery services, you will remain as safe as possible because the CMA regulates the midwifery profession and supports Registered Midwives in all situations. For clients, please make sure that you review the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics contained on this website, so that you know what Registered Midwives do to provide high quality care.

Protect Yourselves and Others: We all own the responsibility of decreasing the spread of this virus.

The CMA expects to operate well this way, continuing to meet the mandate of public protection.

What This Means for our Daily Interactions:

COVID-19 Information


The impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt by our community. Through this important time, we kindly ask that our registrants, guests, suppliers and contractors follow provincial health service recommendations to ensure their own safety as well as the safety of our staff, members and the public.
