Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The College of Midwives of Ontario deserves funding through operational grants;
  • The College should continue to be funded within reason as it continues towards its goal of financial independence;
  • Midwifery should be considered a critical healthcare service; and
  • An oversight college needs to be funded to monitor quality healthcare outcomes.
We, the undersigned, concerned citizens of Ontario, call upon the Government of Canada to denounce the decision of the Ontario Government's Ministry of Health to cut operational grants to the College of Midwives of Ontario, and to highlight how the retroactive nature of the cut is especially egregious to the Government of Ontario.
