Mission, Vision, Values and Mandate


The Saskatchewan College of Midwives (SCM) regulates their members in the provision of safe, competent and professional midwifery care responsive to family and community needs.


Province-wide access to excellence in midwifery care through a self-governing, self-sustaining regulatory body.


A family/community directed approach – engaging in care models that upholds the client, family and community as the director of their care experience and health outcomes.

Truth and Reconciliation – honour and actively participate in calls to action and identify and engage in strategies that prevent and address Anti-Indigenous and systemic racism.

Inter-professional collaboration – acknowledging the best care is achieved through a collegial team approach which embraces the expertise of each team member.

Continuous learning – advancing midwifery practice and knowledge reflective of evidence and emerging best practices.

Accountability – being effective stewards of our resources, assuming responsibility for our actions and decisions and the impact of these on others.

Professionalism – a way of leading that demonstrates ethical, honest and respectful behaviour.


The SCM mandate is to serve and protect the public interest by regulating midwifery practice in accordance with The Midwifery Act, The Midwifery Regulations, The Regulatory Bylaws and other relevant legislation. The goal of the SCM is to register qualified, competent midwives to provide safe, high-quality care to clients and their families in the province of Saskatchewan.
