Title: Midwifery Technical Expert, National Programs
Salary Range: $75,000 – $90,000 per annum, based on education and experience
The Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) is the national organization representing the profession of midwifery in Canada. CAM promotes excellence in midwifery care by developing and providing a wide variety of resources and professional development opportunities for over 2200 midwives across the country. Our programming is funded mostly by the federal government and private donors and themes include all aspects of sexual and reproductive health and rights including anti-racism in health care, provision of abortion services and many more.
CAM is currently expanding its national programming. We are launching several new and innovative projects to better support the work of midwives. Our team is growing, and we are looking for a Midwifery Technical Expert to join us. We value equity, integrity, responsibility, and respect. We emphasize a human-centered approach to our work and a commitment to the health and well-being of the team, membership, leadership, and the communities we work with.
CAM is deeply committed to ensuring our organization and programs reflects the diversity of our members and of the clients they serve – this includes diversity of race, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin, disability, and all other protected grounds under the Canadian Human Rights Act. Individuals working with CAM should have a demonstrated ability to apply an anti-racist and anti-oppressive framework while integrating the principals of racial equity, Indigenous sovereignty, and social justice to all their work. Lived experience with racial and/or other human right-based inequity, including the impact of anti-Indigenous or anti-Black racism and/or other human rights-based discrimination on both an individual and structural level is an asset.
The National Team is excited to welcome a Midwifery Technical Expert to support us in the development and delivery of new educational resources for our members.
Reporting to CAM’s National Programs Manager, the Midwifery Technical Expert (MTE) supports the objectives of CAM’s national programs by contributing clinical and thematic expertise. The MTE develops, coordinates, and provides quality control for clinical content generated by consultants and assists the organization in planning and implementing relevant programming. The MTE plays a role in project development, planning and execution, including administering aspects of various projects as needed.
