It is our current understanding that The College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC) is the regulatory body for massage therapy. The CMTBC sets the requirements for registration as a Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs), creates the Standards of Practice, sets the standards for advertising, ethics and discipline, investigates complaints against RMTs, and requires and monitors continuing education credits among other responsibilities.
According to the CMTBC:
Beginning January 2024, practising RMTs will be required to participate in the CMTBC's newly redesigned Quality Assurance program and must complete one or more learning activities that support their individual learning plans each year.
For information regarding your requirement for Registration renewal, please visit the CMTBC website at: https://www.cmtbc.ca/registrants/quality-assurance/
