Canadian Midwifery Registration Examination (CMRE)

The CMRE is a national written examination designed to assess applicants for midwifery registration to ensure that they meet entry-level competency standards set out in the Canadian Competencies for Midwives. Its goal is to ensure that midwives gaining registration are competent and safe practitioners providing a consistent standard of care across Canada.

While the Canadian Competencies of Midwives describes what is being tested, the Exam Blueprint outlines the test parameters – how many questions on each competency area, contextual variables taken into account on the exam, and elements of standardization, such as the use of metric measurements.

Additional information about the exam can be found in the following documents:
