COVID-19 Updates

Based on ongoing developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic and until Public Health orders ease further, the Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba (MTAM) will hold online events for most MTAM courses and functions. Some smaller events may be held in person when possible and with physical distancing protocols in place. 

The MTAM Conference is scheduled for April 24-25, 2021 with the AGM scheduled for April 26th from 9-11am.

The Annual Awards presentation will be held on June 24, 2021.

We are busy planning our 2021 Spring Conference! Please check our MTAM Conference website in the coming weeks for new details on courses, presenters and exhibitors.

As recently announced, the Annual Awards Presentation which has long been part of the Spring Conference, has been moved to its own special night. 

This change was made in response to extensive member feedback and we look forward to seeing everyone virtually to acknowledge all of our members who have made significant contributions to MTAM and the Massage Therapy profession in Manitoba.
