July 13, Winnipeg, Man. – The Canadian Council of Massage Therapy Schools (CCMTS) met in Banff, Alberta, in May for its 2010 annual general meeting (AGM) with a purpose to reflect on, and confirm, its commitment to quality massage education in Canada.

The CCMTS AGM mandate has always been to share, with the membership, the work the board has accomplished over the previous year and to strategically plan a course of action for the year to come. This year, board members were excited by what they see as a paradigm shift in the profession, with the development of a national standard of professional competencies and growing respect, throughout Canada, for massage therapy as a profession.

Highlights from the meeting include:


  • a growing membership base, now incorporating 38 schools

  • new and enhanced stakeholder benefits

  • renewed mission statement, values and objectives for the future

  • report from Randy Ellingson on the competency document established by the Consortium of Massage Therapy Regulators

  • new initiatives by the education committee

  • and more.


Look for a full report, by CCMTS president Garth Beddome, on this AGM, and the issues covered there, in the 2010 Summer issue of Massage Therapy Canada.

Also, if your school is not yet a member of the Canadian Council of Massage Therapy Schools, you are invited to visit their website at www.ccmts.ca to learn more about the organization, its priorities, mission statement, and benefits to member schools.
