About CAM

The Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) is the national professional association representing midwives and the profession of midwifery in Canada. Our work is focused on ensuring more equitable access to high quality sexual, reproductive, and newborn midwifery services in Canada and globally. To achieve this, we work in partnership with the National Aboriginal Council of Midwives (NACM), midwifery associations, midwives, and relevant stakeholders.

NACM’s mission is to promote excellence in reproductive health care for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities. Both CAM and NACM are governed autonomously but share infrastructure and human resources. Both organizations are staffed by a passionate team of individuals dedicated to providing support for midwives and Indigenous midwives and the profession of midwifery across Canada and globally.
