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.
Benefits to Working with CAM
CAM is deeply committed to ensuring our organization reflects the diversity of our members and of the clients they serve –this includes diversity of race, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin, disability, and all other protected grounds under the Canadian Human Rights Act. CAM encourages submissions from applicants from diverse communities.
As CAM’s Executive Assistant to the Executive Director, you’ll work with a team of committed administrative professionals to support through a variety of administrative, clerical, and non-supervisory tasks. In your day to day, you’ll directly support the Executive Director in tasks such as scheduling, expense reports and travel arrangements, internal and external stakeholder communications, and other support as required.
To be successful in the role, you’ll need to be detailed oriented, organized, and tactful. Most importantly, CAM’s values of equity, respect, responsibility, and integrity will be demonstrated not only in your work, but in your interactions with team members, members, and stakeholders alike.
In return, you’ll work in a value driven organization while gaining valuable experience in the non-profit sector.
