NOTICE - January 2012: The Application Portfolio is currently closed to users who have not Finalized (applied)
The process used to assess applicants for the MMBP is currently undergoing review, and it is anticipated that changes will be made to the Application Portfolio this spring, including changing, removing and/or adding questions. During this period, the Application Portfolio will be inaccessible to users who have not finalized (applied). It is hoped that the application process will resume in the summer of 2012.
While efforts will be made to retain/transfer as much of the Application Portfolio information as possible, users may be asked to provide some information again in a new format once the application reopens.
Please contact the MMBP Office if you would like more information.

The MMBP Application Portfolio will ask you to provide information about:
- your midwifery and other education,
- your midwifery clinical experience,
- your prior midwifery registration (if applicable), and
- a description of your current midwifery practice.
The MMBP Application Portfolio also collects information about your English language fluency and other relevant topics.

Once you have set up your application account, you can complete it over a number of days and/or weeks.
After you complete the MMBP Application Portfolio, you will be required to print a copy, sign it with notary as witness, and mail it to the MMBP office.
You will also need to send and have others send evidence of the following to the MMBP office:
- your midwifery education,
