Number of Midwives
Aug 8, 2018
There are over 1,690 midwives working in Canada; over half of these midwives are in Ontario.
Since regulation in the 1990s and later, the number of midwives in Canada has grown exponentially. In 2005, there were only 500 registered midwives, and today there are over 1,690. The number of midwives continues to grow steadily, as approximately 150 new midwives graduate from educational programs each year.
