In June 2017, Toronto hosted one of the largest ICM Congresses the world has ever seen. A record-breaking 4,200 midwives from 112 countries attended the 31st ICM Triennial Congress to learn, share, meet and celebrate.

The 2017 conference theme, Midwives making a difference in the world, was underscored by provocative and engaging presentations. Distinguished international guests included: the former President of Tanzania, Jakaya Kikwete; the Acting Executive Director of the UNFPA, Natalia Kanem; and ICM’s Goodwill Ambassador, Toyin Saraki. There were also two representatives of the Canadian government at the ICM Congress: the Honourable Jane Philpott, Minister of Health; and Member of Parliament Celina Caesar-Chavannes, Parliamentary Secretary for the Minister of International Development.
