RMT associations take issues to federal election
Massage therapists' associations across Canada want politicians running in the federal election to address several issues pertaining to the massage therapy profession.
The Canadian Massage Therapist Alliance (CMTA) has created three letter templates that the association would like individual massage therapist across the country to send to their respective political candidates in their jurisdiction, a statement from the Registered Massage Therapists' Association of Ontario website stated.
These letters bring attention to three issues important to the profession: taxation, introduction of massage therapy benefits for active service members of the Canadian Forces, and the inclusion of massage therapy in the recently proposed health care tax credit.
"The RMTAO is asking for all members in the profession to fill out the letter templates and send them to the MP candidates in your electoral district. Your fellow massage therapists acorss the country will be doing the same. Together, this means that over 20,000 massage therapists are working towards the same goals," said the RMTAO statement.
"United together, we can make a difference," it added.
RMTs who are members of the CMTA-affiliated provincial associations can contact their respective associations to download a copy of the letter templates.
