12 Jul Ontario Birth Centres – Call for Applications

The Association of Ontario Midwives launched a campaign last May to establish birth centres in Ontario (in addition to Tsi Non:we Ionnakeratstha Ona:grahsta’, the birth centre located on the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory). After a dedicated campaign by midwives, and enthusiastic support from over 10,000 Ontarians, the provincial government announced its intention to fund two birth centres on March 20, 2012.

Please find attached a newspaper ad announcing the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Call for Applications for the establishment and operation of Ontario Birth Centres.  The deadline for submitting applications is September 4, 2012 at 5:00pm.
