Call for Members for the Nunavut Midwifery Registration Committee

The Department of Health is seeking two members of the public to serve on the Nunavut Midwifery Registration Committee, who are not registered midwives and who are not employees of the Government of Nunavut.

The Nunavut Midwifery Registration Committee reviews and makes decisions on applications for licensing and renewal of midwives under the Midwifery Profession Act.

Applicants should have an interest in the profession of midwifery and be prepared to devote two to four hours a month for a teleconference meeting. A knowledge of traditional Inuit midwifery practice is an asset. Incumbents will assist in advancing midwifery professional development including incorporating traditional midwifery knowledge into practice.

Those interested in this opportunity should submit their resume, letter of interest, and references by February 28, 2021 to:
