Canadian-educated midwifery candidates are eligible to write the Canadian Midwifery Registration Examination (CMRE) if they have completed an approved program of Midwifery education within the jurisdiction where the candidate is writing the exam.
The CMRE is a national written examination designed to assess applicants for Midwifery registration to ensure that they meet entry-level competency standards set out in Canadian Competencies for Midwives. Its goal is to ensure that midwives gaining registration are competent and safe practitioners providing a consistent standard of care across Canada.
Candidates must provide proof of program completion with a pass score to the College of Midwives of BC. It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that transcripts are provided by the educating body. If transcripts are not available, a letter from the educating body indicating: a) that all assessment components have been completed; and b) that the candidate has passed all aspects of the program, will be accepted.
