    Restore all provincial funding to Ontario College of Midwives

    Another cut affecting primarily women.

    "Doug Ford's government has revoked current and future funding for the College of Midwives of Ontario, the regulatory body that oversees more than 900 midwives and has had government support for 25 years."

    In September 2018, the Ford government was told by the Tribunal to negotiate with midwives to end the pay equity gap. To date, the Ford Tories have refused to negotiate.

    The statement said the changes will have no impact on the public. "We cannot cut our services and programs, as the College's work is mandated by our governing legislation," it said.

    "It is likely that midwives will have to pay more to the College on an annual basis," the College added. "This is not news we wanted to share."

    Whereas the College of Midwives is responsible for licensing and regulating the profession of midwifery; and the province of Ontario is responsible for funding medical care;

    We the undersigned, as constituents and residents of Ontario, demand Ontario restore funding to the Ontario College of Midwives immediately.

    Removing funding places the burden of financing the college on approximately 900 members whose fees are capped by the province.

    First, we marched. Now, we move forward.

    On January 21, thousands of Canadians, many of us waving signs and wearing pointy-eared pink hats, gathered in cities and towns across the country to show solidarity with the massive Women’s March in Washington.

    Help us have consistent, year-round funding, donate monthly.

    Today, our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada. Our vision is to make equality of women in Canada the new norm.

    All dollars raised will support Women's March Canada efforts moving forward. At this time, Women's March Canada, while registered as a not for profit organization, is not a registered charity and we are unable to issue official donation receipts for income tax purposes.

    Our organization needs community support to keep going!
