The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada is comprised of over 3,000 professional members, including gynaecologists, obstetricians, family physicians, nurses, midwives and allied health professionals.  A leading authority on reproductive health care, the SOGC produces national clinical guidelines for both public and medical education on important women's health issues.

The Society's mission is to promote excellence in the practice of obstetrics and gynaecology and to advance the health of women through leadership, advocacy, collaboration, outreach and education.

For over 10 years now, the SOGC has been promoting safe motherhood and newborn health around the world, through its International Women’s Health Program. The SOGC partners with obstetrics and gynaecology associations in low-resource countries to upgrade the organizational capacity of the association and to enhance the skills of health care professionals so that they may assume a leadership role in the promotion of sexual and reproductive health.

The ALARM (Advances in Labour and Risk Management) International Program, a training tool designed to reduce maternal death or injury in developing countries, has been delivered in over 20 countries around the world by SOGC member volunteers.
