A licensed midwife will complete the following steps as part of renewal:

  • Meet Continuing Education requirements and report completion of Continuing Education through CEBroker.
  • Submit a renewal application and associated fees.
  • Submit an updated Emergency Care Plan for Delivery

The renewal deadline for licensed midwives is December 31 of the renewal year, every odd year.

Licensed midwives are required to renew their licenses biennially to maintain the right to practice. Renewals can now be completed online via the MQA Services Portal:

Once a license has been renewed, you will receive a license within 7-10 business days. Contacting Council staff or the Department will not expedite the process of receiving your license.

Licenses that are not renewed by the renewal deadline will become delinquent and will remain delinquent for up to two years, unless the license is reinstated out of delinquency.

Licenses that have been delinquent for two years will become null and void after the renewal deadline. A license that becomes null and void cannot be reinstated; to become re-licensed, you will have to reapply.

More information on using the MQA Services Portal can be found by following the links below:

License Status Changes 

The license status for current licenses is typically reported in two parts. A licensee who is able to practice will typically have a license in CLEAR, ACTIVE status.

The first part of the license status states whether the license is CLEAR or DELINQUENT. A licensee may not practice on a license that is DELINQUENT, as the license has not been renewed.

The second part of the license can be ACTIVE or INACTIVE. This affects whether a licensee must complete Continuing Education requirements for renewal. A licensee may not practice on an INACTIVE license. A license in INACTIVE status must still be renewed; Continuing Education requirements will be verified when a licensee elects to move from INACTIVE to ACTIVE status, either during renewal, or by submitting a request and appropriate fees to the Board outside renewal.
