Mission and Values

The Association of Ontario Midwives Benefits Trust (AOMBT) is a separate legal entity from the Association of Ontario Midwives (AOM), and is governed by a Board of Trustees. There are 10 Trustees on the Board. 1 of these Trustees is appointed by the AOM Board to the AOMBT. The Executive Director of the AOM is also a Trustee. The rest of the Trustees are nominated and elected by the midwifery membership for 3 year terms.

The goal of the Trust is to ensure that the program’s objectives are met and that the program remains viable over the long term. It is also the responsibility of Trustees to ensure that all aspects of the benefits program remain competitive, and that it is administered competently and cost-effectively.
