To safeguard our employees and visitors, the NHPC office itself is closed and staff are working remotely. See our COVID-19 Q & A for pandemic-specific information.

COVID-19 Q & A

To keep you informed on how the COVID-19 pandemic affects your practice, we update this Q & A regularly and email you with special bulletins. 

We encourage you to share this information, our social media posts, and our COVID-19 Safety Precautions Poster (PDF) with those you connect with.

  • Although the NHPC office itself is closed as a precaution, staff are working remotely and can help you by email or phone between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (MT). 
  • For members who are due to renew from March 30, 2020, and onwards, we are extending the deadline by one month without charging an arrears fee.
  • If your Continued Competency Program (CCP) credits are due this year, rest easy, we have suspended CCP requirements for now.
  • We can't currently produce printed documents, but you can access your documents online through your account.
  • If you mail your renewal to us during this time, the processing time will be longer than usual (so online renewal is preferred). 
  • If you are putting your practice on hold and you are due to renew soon, you can change to associate membership by submitting a change membership type application in your account.

We are monitoring how the pandemic is impacting our members and adjusting our measures as needed.

We currently have the following measures in place:

  • Renewal deadlines have been automatically deferred by 30 days with no arrears period.
  • At the time of renewal, regular members have the option to change to associate membership instead of renewing as a regular member. Associate membership is an uninsured membership type which costs only $150 (plus tax). 
  • Associate members changing back to regular membership will have the remainder of the associate dues they previously paid deducted from the upgrade cost.

In general, we advise you not to make appointments for couples massage. Most provinces and territories have restrictions on your practice environment (e.g. distancing, ventilation, etc.) that would not be possible to meet with two practitioners and two clients in the same treatment room.

Even with clients from the same household, having two practitioners in one enclosed space increases the risk of transmission of COVID-19 over that of a one-on-one massage.

For your safety, your clients' safety, and your co-worker's safety, we recommend that you not perform couples massage. You should also not feel pressured to perform couples massage by clients or an employer if you do not feel it is safe.

If you would like to perform couples massage, you must check your province or territory's requirements for work spaces and ensure you can meet all of them. If you can't meet all of the requirements for your practice, then you should not be performing couples massage.

With any vaccination, there is a local contraindication to the site of injection. If there is redness and soreness, consider the entire limb as contraindicated for treatment. 

Some people will have no side-effects after receiving the vaccination, and some may have mild to moderate flu-like or COVID-like symptoms. If your client has these symptoms, delay their treatment for 24 to 48 hours until their symptoms are gone.

As usual, all clients must be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to their appointment. Your client's answers to the COVID-19 screening questions will help you determine whether an appointment is appropriate or not.

COVID-19 symptoms that are new and not related to a known or pre-existing condition mean that the client is not eligible for treatment.

For additional information about vaccination, Alberta Health's Vaccination Q&A (PDF) answers many questions that are relevant to practitioners across Canada. Please refer to your provincial/territorial government website for location-specific topics like vaccination roll-out.

AstraZeneca Vaccine and Blood Clots

Health Canada has advised of rare reports of blood clots associated with low levels of blood platelets in AstraZeneca vaccine recipients.

If your client has received the AstraZeneca vaccine within the last 20 days, ask them the following question:

Have you experienced any of the following?

  • throbbing or cramping pain, swelling, and redness in an arm or leg
  • trouble breathing, chest pain, abdominal pain
  • sudden onset of headaches or blurred vision
  • change in colour, pain, or itching in an arm or leg

If they answer "yes," they should seek immediate medical attention. 

Self-isolation requirements depend on your province or territory. If you know of a client, co-worker, or family member who has tested positive for COVID-19 or has been in close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19, you may need to self-isolate.

Please check with your provincial or territorial government for whether you need to self-isolate or not based on your contact with the person in question.

A client's health history includes vaccination status and whether they have been infected with COVID-19 or not. However, you must have a valid purpose for collecting this personal health information before asking for it.

If you think these factors may impact your client's treatment plan, it is appropriate to ask them about it when you ask about their health history. Remember that this is considered part of their health history, and the same data collection and privacy safeguards should be applied.

Regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not, you must continue to screen all clients for COVID-19 symptoms. Screening should not include asking whether a client has been vaccinated or not; that should only be asked as part of their health history during treatment. 

Yes. Vaccination is only one part of the overall infection control strategy, and safety and sanitation protocols must remain in place for all clients, regardless of their vaccination status.

Continue to follow all public health measures for prevention and control of COVID-19 infection and transmission.

For changes in quarantine requirements for those who have been fully immunized (i.e. received their first and second vaccine), check with provincial/territorial health authorities.

No. If a client asks whether you have been vaccinated for COVID-19 or not, you do not have to provide that information, as it is considered personal health information.

If you do not want to answer them, then let them know it is considered personal health information and that you choose not to disclose it.

If you want to answer them, simply state whether you have been vaccinated or not, and do not provide an explanation. A client may misunderstand an explanation as advice or counselling, which is outside the scope of practice of NHPC members.

It is not within the scope of practice of any NHPC member to provide advice or counselling about vaccines. To avoid misunderstandings and liability, do not provide your opinion on vaccines to clients.

If a client asks you for your opinion or information on vaccination, refer them to their primary health care provider or provincial or federal health authorities for information.

Private businesses are free to decide who they serve to protect the health and safety of their clients and staff. However, NHPC members are holistic health care professionals who have ethical standards to consider when deciding whether to refuse treatment based on vaccination status or other criteria.

Currently, we do not recommend that you refuse to treat clients based on their vaccination status. Although the NHPC Code of Ethics (PDF) states that you can

"retain and practice the right to refuse to treat any client if the provision of such treatment poses risk of harm either to the client or to the practitioner"

by following all the COVID-19 risk mitigation protocols, such as wearing the required PPE and screening clients for symptoms and close contacts, you can still provide appropriate care in a relatively safe environment for clients, staff, and yourself.

Also consider that the Code of Ethics states that practitioners will refrain from discriminating against clients based on a medical condition.

If a client has a medical condition or disability that prevents them from being vaccinated or they choose not to be vaccinated due to religious beliefs, refusing to treat them may be a violation of the human rights legislation that protects Canadians against discrimination based on religion and disabilities.

Whether or not an individual is vaccinated is considered sensitive personal health information. We advise that you do not place vaccination status on a company website or booking site because it is personal health information.

Keep in mind that there are practitioners who cannot be vaccinated due to health conditions, disability, or religious beliefs, which are protected grounds under human rights legislation. 

If your provincial/territorial or municipal government has ordered that non-essential services must be suspended, then you must close your practice until they lift those orders. The NHPC Code of Ethics states that members must abide by applicable laws, regulations, and legislation, so you have both an ethical and legal obligation to follow any public health orders.

Governments have also started issuing fines and enforcing closure to businesses that do not comply, so it is in your best interest to follow any closure orders.

Please check in the Provincial and Territorial Bulletins section below to see if business/service closures have been ordered for your province or territory. Even if your province/territory and municipality have not issued any public orders for closure, you will still be unable to offer services due to physical distancing requirements.

Some provinces or territories have allowed regulated health professionals to deliver emergency or urgent care during the suspension of services. However, care is only classified as urgent if a client who does not receive that care will suffer serious and imminent harm and is at risk of an emergency room visit.

Having patients scheduled for appointments because the patient requests it is not considered emergency or essential care.

While the services our members provide are beneficial, the NHPC does not consider them emergency or essential health care services during this time of pandemic because the benefits do not outweigh the risk of transmission of COVID-19 during treatment.

Since treatment requires extended close contact, you are at high risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19, regardless of your precautions and sanitation measures.

Even if they don't have symptoms, it is possible for a single practitioner to spread the coronavirus to a number of clients without knowing it. Those people may be in a high-risk group or spread it to someone who is in a high-risk group, especially if they are health care professionals themselves.

The risk of accelerating the spread of COVID-19 is too great to continue practising at this time. 

Until your province or territory announces that your specific type of business can reopen, you must follow previous public health orders and business closures. We will email members of each province/territory as relevant business reopenings are announced.

Check the Provincial and Territorial Bulletins section below to find out if your province/territory has plans for business reopening. You must follow their instructions for reopening, including workplace sanitation, personal protective equipment use, and physical distancing measures. We have also put together a summary of business re-openings (PDF). 

You should also check the website of your municipal government in case there are different opening dates or requirements for your specific community.

You do not have to return to work if you think it is unsafe to practise. Evaluate your personal risk based on your own practice environment, client population, and access to personal protective equipment (PPE), etc.

If your province or territory has announced that your business type can re-open, you must take the required precautions in your workplace. This includes all sanitation, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), and physical distancing measures required by the government.

If you can't take the precautions necessary to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 — for any reason or at any time — you should not practise.

Check the Provincial and Territorial Bulletins section below for required workplace precautions for your province or territory. You can use our Return-to-work Member Handbook (PDF) as a supplement to any government requirements.

If you own a clinic, hold an orientation for staff to ensure they know all sanitation and distancing procedures, and post the procedures where they can easily refer to them.

The following resources are also available for you to use in your practice:
COVID-19: Caution to Clients Entering Clinic Poster (PDF)
Proper Handwashing Protocol Poster (PDF)
General COVID-19 Client Waiver (PDF)

We know many of you are having difficulty finding the PPE your province/territory requires you to wear to practise. In response, we reviewed a number of PPE suppliers to create a list of potential sources for you.

Although we have reviewed each site, there has been a rise in illegitimate sites taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic. As with any website, if a site appears insecure or behaves suspiciously at any point, immediately stop using it.

Saskatchewan Government Sources

To help Saskatchewan businesses source the PPE they need, the Government of Saskatchewan has compiled lists of PPE suppliers. There are two lists — one that identifies suppliers of hand sanitizer (PDF) and another that includes suppliers of various other types of PPE (PDF).

Find Out What Resources You Are Eligible For

The federal government has developed this financial assistance questionnaire to help people determine what resources are available to them. Simply input your information to see what you are eligible to apply for.


Canada Recover Benefit (CRB)

The Canada Recover Benefit (CRB) offers eligible applicants $1,000 ($900 after taxes withheld) for a two-week period.

See the Provincial and Territorial Bulletins section below for links to financial assistance information for specific provinces and territories. 

There has been an increase in scams related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ranging from illegitimate product vendors to fake charities.

Familiarize yourself with common COVID-19 scams and report any fraud you encounter to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.

Pandemics are not specifically excluded from your insurance coverage. If you are a regular member, your medical malpractice insurance coverage is in effect as long as you are following provincial/territorial requirements (at minimum) for safety when practising.

Any cases brought against members due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be examined on a case-by-case basis by the insurance company.

Your medical malpractice insurance does not cover loss of income or business interruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It does cover client claims of negligence during their treatment resulting in bodily injury, sickness, or disease.

For further questions about your coverage, please contact AON, the plan administrator, directly at: or 1-877-766-3093.

If you have additional questions that aren't answered on your provincial/territorial government websites, please contact your local Member of Parliament.

We're all in this together and this advice applies to all of us. While we all want to take care of our physical and mental well-being by practising self-care, please stay home if you answer "yes" to any of the following:

  • Have you traveled to anywhere outside of Canada?
  • Have you been in close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19?
  • Are you experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, difficulty breathing, etc.)?
  • WASH your hands with soap and water often – for at least 20 seconds
  • AVOID touching your eyes, hands, nose, and mouth
  • DISINFECT frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • COVER your nose and mouth with your elbow or a tissue when coughing and sneezing
  • DO NOT shake hands.
  • DISTANCE YOURSELF. Try to stay at least two metres away from people when in public.
  • POST our safety precautions poster (PDF).

Regularly check municipal and provincial/territorial government health services for updates on the current status of the virus, hygiene practices for health professionals, and workplace preparation. 

Also check your inbox for messages from the NHPC as well as this Q & A, which is updated frequently. 

This is an opportunity to spend time working on things you've been meaning to do with your practice, but haven't had the time for until now, like:

  • establish a presence on social media
  • ask clients to leave business reviews
  • make a business or marketing plan
  • plan a website or improve your website Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • document clinic procedures for sanitation and infection prevention to post when you re-open
  • learn about managing finances, cash flow, and contingency funds
  • go through client files and set aside files that have been inactive for over 10 years to be securely destroyed

You can also think about complementary revenue streams that may help your income now and in the future. For example, sell gift certificates or bundled treatments that can be used later or items that can be used at home for self-care.

As a holistic practitioner, you can also support the well-being of others:

  • reach out to clients to see if they would like any advice for self-care or exercises they can do at home
  • offer online workshops to your community through social media or YouTube

Although we have suspended CCP requirements for now, consider working on your credits anyway so you can focus on your practice once it is active again. Some activities you can do from home:

  • organize an online discussion with other practitioners to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on your practice and what you can do (Learning Type: Informal Meeting)
  • read electronic books or journals (Learning Type: Publications)
  • complete an online course or learning module (Learning Type: Online Learning)
  • develop or continue a mentorship through online communication (Learning Type: Mentoring)
  • enhance your well-being through activities like meditation, yoga, qigong, or tai chi (Learning Type: Personal Development)

If you teach workshops in-person, think about if you could adapt your content to be taught via video or online webinar. If you can, not only does it count for CCP credits (Learning Type: Teaching) but it could also be another source of income.

Refer to our CCP Guide (PDF) for all the learning types and their credit eligibility.

Since the Continued Competency Program (CCP) requires in-person First Aid and CPR training, you do not have to complete this requirement until it is safe to do so.

There is a difference in course price and length when renewing an active certificate vs. recertifying because your certificate has expired. Please contact your First Aid and CPR/AED provider for details on pricing.

Some providers continue to offers classes with participant limits to accommodate physical distancing if you don't want to wait. Other providers are extending the dates existing certification is considered valid to help practitioners whose certification would expire while physical distancing is in effect. 

Please check with your First Aid and CPR/AED provider directly for their individual COVID-19 policies. 

You may communicate with existing clients this way. For example, a massage therapist could suggest home care and exercises for clients.

If you charge a fee for this service, you cannot bill it as "massage therapy" or any other touch-based modality because it does not constitute a full treatment. You must advise your clients that this online service may not be covered by their insurance provider.

You must also ensure that whatever platform you use is confidential and secure, so you are in compliance with health care privacy legislation.

If you treat family members, you must be able to maintain objective care, meeting all professional standards and requirements in every aspect of the treatment, including record-keeping, receipting, and maintaining client confidentiality.

Insurance companies may have specific policies on treating family members. Therefore, they may flag a family member treatment as potential benefit plan abuse or conflict of interest and not reimburse the claim. Contact the insurance company directly to ask about their policies before providing treatment.

Some insurance companies have also stated that they will not be reimbursing claims for services provided during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are gathering self-care resources to help members take care of their emotional and mental well-being during this stressful time.

Start by attending to both your physical and mental well-being with the Meditate and Move self-care videos from the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals (ABMP).
