Despite decades of calls for provincial regulation from within the industry, massage therapy in Quebec remains largely a patchwork of minimum requirements and codes of conduct and the profession is entirely self-regulating.

Currently, there are 34 professional associations that govern more than 20,000 massage therapists in Quebec.
The president of the largest professional association for massage therapists in Quebec, Martin Vallée, said they would like to see a universal registry created that would standardize the ethics code and training required, but stopped short of calling for a formal college to be established.
