Legislation

The CMTA believes that it is in the best interest of patients and the profession that all provinces and territories regulate Massage Therapists under their Health Professions Act.

The CMTA encourages and supports those non-regulated jurisdictions to seek regulation that meet the requirement set out by the National Agreement on Internal Trade.
