Forming a Regulatory College in Manitoba

In Manitoba, the NHPC and the Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba (MTAM) have been collaborating for many years on the process for regulation.

In 2015, their collective effort resulted in the government accepting their recommendation to regulate the massage therapy profession in Manitoba.

Since the government accepted the recommendation, the two associations have provided an updated report to the government addressing key issues. These include:

  • educational standards for applicants and members
  • levels of competency for therapists
  • entry requirements
  • review of costs, expenses, and fee structure for the College

The NHPC and MTAM currently await further direction from the Government of Manitoba on the next steps towards forming a College.
