Making a Complaint

The Saskatchewan College of Midwives (SCM) protects the public interest by ensuring that Saskatchewan registered midwives practice safely, competently and ethically.

If you have a concern about unprofessional, unsafe or unethical midwifery practice in Saskatchewan, you have the right to make a complaint to the SCM and to have it investigated. Although there is no time limit to register a complaint, you should let the SCM know about your concern as soon as possible.

Please note that the SCM does not have the authority to assess injury or award compensation to a complainant. This is done through the court system.

Making a complaint about a midwife's professional practice is a serious matter. If you have a concern about care provided by a midwife, you may contact the Registrar at the SCM to first discuss your concerns to decide if you wish to make a complaint. The SCM may be able to help you to resolve the problem prior to submitting a formal complaint.

A complaint about registered midwifery practice must be made in writing to:

Saskatchewan College of Midwives
PO Box 32097
Regina, Saskatchewan S4N 7L2

The SCM cannot process complaints against individuals who are not registered midwives. However, if you have concerns about someone providing midwifery care that is not a registered midwife, please contact the Registrar at 306.781.1352
