MTAM recognized curriculums are based on entry-level inter-jurisdictional practice competencies established by the profession in 2012 and updated in 2016.

Curriculum Recognition

Registered schools of Massage Therapy curriculum are assessed by the MTAM against the inter-jurisdictional practice competencies document, along with a number of criteria that MTAM feels are important to the Association, its membership, and to the public we serve. The MTAM does not approve curriculum for use in the schools. This is the responsibility of Manitoba Advanced Education & Literacy.  

MTAM Supports the National Accreditation Council

The MTAM supports A Plan to Establish a Canadian Accreditation Process for Massage Therapy Education Programs

The purpose of the accreditation process is to provide a mechanism for quality assurance and continuing quality improvement of entry-level massage therapy education programs across Canada. Accreditation will foster a common national entry-level education standard that is based upon the entry-to-practice requirements in the regulated provinces, and in doing so will facilitate the initiation of regulation in provinces that are currently unregulated.  Accreditation will support the advancement of massage therapy as a health care profession, thereby serving the public interest.
