Since 2001, the Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) and the National Aboriginal Council of Midwives (NACM) have promoted the vital role of midwives in sexual, reproductive, and newborn health. We work across all levels, driving change in legislation and funding, strengthening regional associations, and supporting midwives directly with tools and learning opportunities.
The Future – CAM’s 5 Year Plan
CAM’s new 5-Year Plan is our road map of growth for midwifery. Learn more about the plan and what it means for midwifery and you in the 2021 Annual Report.

On top of our 3 Pillars and core values, we also have policies to help guide decision making.
CAM’s Position Statements outline our views on key issues around sexual and reproductive health. Topics rage from anti-racism to working conditions. These statements help influence the conversation and move legislation towards our goal of equitable access to excellent sexual, reproductive, and newborn midwifery services for everyone.
