This campaign launched in May by the Canadian Association of Midwives is coming to a close Oct 17th 2012.

CAM launched Choice. Access. Midwives. to draw attention to the lack of access to midwifery care faced by many women and families in Canada. They are highlighting three specific issues surrounding access to midwifery care namely, lack of access in unregulated provinces and territories, lack of access for Aboriginal communities, and lack of access for many families in rural and remote regions of Canada. The main action of this campaign is to encourage all Canadians to sign an e-letter that is sent directly to Prime Minister Harper and Health Minister Aglukkaq.

This campaign will close at the CAM Annual Conference in St. John’s, NL October 17 where CAM hopes to present the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, and all Canadians with an impressive number of signatures.
