Canadian Association of Midwives / Association canadienne des sages-femmes (CAM/ACSF)

The Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) is the national organization representing midwives and the profession of midwifery in Canada.

The mission of CAM is to provide leadership and advocacy for midwifery as a regulated, publicly funded and vital part of the primary maternity care system in all provinces and territories.
CAM promotes the development of the profession in the public interest and contributes the midwifery perspective to the national health policy agenda.
The vision of the Canadian Association of Midwives is that midwifery is fundamental to maternal and newborn health services, and that every woman in Canada will have access to a midwife’s care for herself and her baby.
