Volunteer Opportunities

At the Massage Therapy Association of Manitoba, we offer various volunteer opportunities for members who are interested in getting involved and making a positive impact in the massage therapy community. 

List of Volunteer Opportunities

Committee Membership:

An RMT’s work is often solitary. Even in a busy clinic you may not have enough opportunities to network and brainstorm with your co-workers. Actively taking part on one of MTAM’s committees gives you access to quality professional opportunities and a host of other benefits!

Networking – Committee meetings help connect you with other RMTs which helps you build your referral network, grow your practice, support your clients, and explore new opportunities. Having quality networking opportunities helps make you sharper, more informed, and increases your value as a health professional.

Career opportunities – Getting to know other committee members often helps you stay informed about new career opportunities and can help you with your own recruitment and hiring efforts.

Leadership opportunities – Taking part on committees helps you hone your leadership skills and allows you to play a role in determining changes in the profession.

Professional Development – Learn about evolving client care and business best practices, fine-tune your craft and learn about your profession a lot faster while earning professional development credits.

View the Committee Info Sheet and Contact MTAM for more information on the  professional development & events, marketing & communications, inclusive practice,  research, regional, and insurance & practice management committees.

Contribute your expertise and actively participate in shaping the direction and initiatives of the Association and the profession.

Event Support:

MTAM organizes events throughout the year, including conferences, workshops, and community outreach programs. Volunteers play a crucial role in assisting with event planning, logistics, registration, and on-site support, ensuring the success of these events.

Mentorship Program:

MTAM offers a mentorship program to support new or less-experienced massage therapists. As a volunteer mentor, you can share your knowledge, skills, and experiences to guide and inspire emerging professionals in the field.

Community Outreach:

MTAM actively engages in community outreach to promote the benefits of massage therapy. Volunteers can participate in health fairs, wellness events, and other community initiatives, representing the Association and educating the public about the value of massage therapy.

CancerCare - Challenge for Life

Each year the MTAM Marketing & Communication Committee leads the volunteer effort for the Challenge for Life.  As Massage Therapists, your gift is to give a post-walk massage to the amazing people who raise funds and walk 5 or 20k or work out for 200 minutes in support of CancerCare Manitoba.

This event is one of the ways that MTAM gives back to the community. It’s so much fun and very meaningful to the participants.

We hope to see our “regulars” and some new RMTs too!

You can deliver presentations, workshops, or demonstrations at conferences, schools, or community centers, spreading awareness and knowledge about the profession.

Legislative Advocacy:

Volunteers can get involved in advocating for the recognition and advancement of massage therapy within the legislative landscape. This may involve activities such as contacting legislators, participating in meetings, and contributing to the development of policies and regulations that impact the profession.

Research and Writing:
