Each year, the Canadian Association of Midwives’ Annual Conference and Exhibit attracts a growing number of midwives, physicians, nurses, students and other health care providers from Canada and abroad.
In June 2017, The Canadian Association of Midwives hosted the 31st International Confederation of Midwives Triennial Congress. Due to this special circumstance, the Canadian Association of Midwives held CAM’s Annual General Meeting in Toronto on June 18, 2017. Therefore, we will not be holding our usual fall Annual Conference and Exhibit in 2017.
This AGM was a historic moment in CAM’s history, as CAM and NACM signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). During the AGM and the ICM Congress, CAM gave every member in attendance a silk scarf as a gift. The scarf represents the collaboration between NACM and CAM, and serves as a commitment to this relationship into the future. It commemorates the signing of the MOU between the two organizations that recognizes and promotes NACM as the national voice and leading authority on Indigenous midwifery and Indigenous reproductive health. The scarf is also a small token of appreciation to members for all the work they do as midwives, educators, regulators, and students. The scarf is available for sale on the CAM website.
