The AOM Midwifery Awards recognize individuals and organizations that promote excellence in midwifery practice and research; have made significant contributions to the midwifery profession, as well as quality perinatal and newborn care; and support the integration of midwifery into Ontario's health-care system.

This award was established with the generous support of the Healthcare Insurance Reciprocal of Canada (HIROC), the insurer for Ontario midwives. It recognizes the commitment to “just culture” and “patient safety culture” by students who identify as Indigenous, Black or racialized, and is divided between up to three students every year.

The AOM Midwifery Awards program is currently on hold for review

The Awards Task Force will be doing a thorough review of the AOM Midwifery Awards program to ensure equity in our awards processes by employing a decolonized, equity-centered approach to evaluating and recognizing achievements and contributions in midwifery. As a result, the awards program will be put on hold, and no AOM awards will be given out in 2022, with the exception of the HIROC Just Culture and Patient Safety Award.

If you have questions about the AOM Midwifery Awards please contact Diana MacNab, Manager, Membership Services.
