On September 18, 2015 the Health Professions Advisory Council (HPAC), the independent body reviewing the Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba (MTAM) application for regulation, submitted its report to the Manitoba Minister of Health.

The Minister has accepted the recommendation that the profession of massage therapy be granted self-regulation under The Regulated Health Professions Act (the RHPA).

The NHPC and MTAM have already been engaging in the collaboration necessary to ensure the development of a regulatory college would be organized, timely, and done to the utmost benefit of RMTs in Manitoba.

NHPC Executive Director, Kelly Sloan, speaks to Massage Therapy Canada about regulation proceeding in Manitoba.
