The Department of Health is seeking a member of the public to serve on the Nunavut Midwifery Registration Committee.

The Nunavut Midwifery Registration Committee reviews and makes decisions on applications for licensing and renewal of midwifery practitioners in Nunavut. This committee also advises the Minister of Health on matters of policy, standards and legislation regarding Registered Midwives in Nunavut.

Public members of the committee are not registered midwives and are not employees of the Government of Nunavut (GN).

A knowledge of traditional Inuit midwifery practice is an asset. Incumbents will assist in advancing midwifery professional development, including incorporating traditional midwifery knowledge into practice.

Committee members will receive an honorarium.
