one-day invitational summit is being featured as a pre-symposium event and is
scheduled for Friday, November 2 at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the
University of Toronto. The follow-up workshop will be held at the same location
on Saturday, November 3 and is open to all RMTs who wish to register for the

landscape of healthcare in Canada is rapidly changing due to demographics,
patient health complexity, and economic pressures. Massage therapy can play a
progressively more important role in providing a safe and effective option for
addressing Canadians’ healthcare needs. A cohesive vision of a national
research agenda for massage therapy is needed in order to ensure maximum
benefit is derived from future MT research for patients, providers and policy
makers and to inspire ongoing discussion and collaboration.

summit will help guide massage therapy research efforts and build strategic
alliances through participation of thought leaders in research and policy, as
well as other stakeholders from across the country and internationally.
