We have three main goals relating to advocacy for the profession of massage therapy in Ontario.


  • Government - To engage with the government to promote the importance of massage therapy for the health and well-being of Canadians and push for the general interests of RMTs in Ontario.
  • Inter-professional Collaboration - Connect with other healthcare professions to position massage therapy as a strong complement to other healthcare services and become part of the circle of care of patients.
  • Insurance - Engage with insurance companies to educate them on the importance of massage therapy for health and wellness of Canadians and uphold the interests of RMTs.
