Our Quest for Regulation: Now the Road to Regulation!
The massage therapy industry is currently not regulated by the Manitoba government. As the largest Association dedicated to Massage Therapists in this province, the MTAM has played an important role in advancing the profession. We have done our best to balance our focus on helping our members and protecting the public, acting in a similar manner as a regulatory body. Our journay to achieve regulation in Manitoba has taken a new and exciting turn! Read more on our Road to Regulation.
