August 18, 2014 – The new Canadian Massage Therapy Council For Accreditation (CMTCA) has commenced the nomination process for its initial board of directors. The CMTCA has listed a number of documents on its website that outlines the nomination process and timeline and provide information for those who are considering putting their names forward.
For this initial appointment to the CMTCA Board, there will only be one seat each from the Canadian Council of Massage Therapy Schools (CCMTS), the Canadian Massage Therapist Alliance (CMTA) and the Federation of Massage Therapy Regulatory Authorities of Canada (FOMTRAC). The initial position from CCMTS is for a public education sector nominee as the private career colleges are already participating through the Founders.

The nomination process and timelines, as well as the nomination criteria and board duties and responsibilities can be found on the CMTCA website.

All nominees must meet the criteria in the CMTCA Nominating Criteria for Board Members document. Nominee must read all the relevant documents (posted on the CMTCA website) and agree to abide by the CMTCA policies if they are appointed to the CMTCA Board. Questions regarding these processes and policies can be directed to the Founders at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Anyone wishing to be considered for nomination should contact the appropriate stakeholder agency, not the CMTCA. Nominations should include the resume of the nominee, a description of their qualifications with reference to the applicable nominating criteria as outlined, as well as two professional references.

The posted documents pertaining to board nomination reflect the guidance in the Accreditation Planning Committee Final Report October 2013, feedback from the Accreditation Advisory Committee in June 2014 and guidance from legal and governance consultants.

Interested parties are asked to check with the appropriate agency (CMTA, CCMTS, FOMTRAC) regarding the deadline date to receive nominations.
