How is midwifery care regulated?

Midwifery has been a regulated profession in Alberta since 1998. The College of Midwives of Alberta is the regulatory body responsible for the registration and practice of midwives throughout the province. The title "midwife" is a protected title and its use by anyone other than a Registered Midwife is illegal. To find out more please visit the College of Midwives of Alberta's website.
