The Canadian Massage Therapy Council for Accreditation (CMTCA) has announced it has completed the process of identifying the members of its first board of directors.
The successful nominees are:

Iain Robertson, a faculty member of Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario – as the Canadian Council of Massage Therapy Schools nominee.

Dr. Marilynne Waithman, a public board member with the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia in Vancouver – as the Federation of Massage Therapy Regulators Authorities of Canada nominee.

Sara Sexton, a member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Massage Therapists Association from St. John’s Newfoundland – as the Canadian Massage Therapist Alliance nominee.

Janis Leonard, an experienced educator with significant professional experience in accreditation in her role with the Ontario College of Teachers and as a board member with the Association of Accrediting Agencies of Canada – as a “non-sector” nominee.

Gordon Griffith, a professional engineer with strong experience and credentials in accreditation at the national level as the director of education for Engineers Canada.

“We received nine nominations in total for the five available seats. All nominations were reviewed and ranked against the published nominating criteria by an external reviewer,” according to the CMTCA.

“We were very impressed by the demonstrated knowledge, experience, commitment, and leadership of each individual and thank all the nominees for participating in this important process.”

The CMTCA said its immediate priority is to bring the first CMTCA board together to discuss next steps. “We anticipate that this will take in place in the next few weeks, after which the next CMTCA communications will be on behalf of the new board of directors,” the agency said.
