The Council is the governing body of the College. According to the Massage Therapy Act, 1991 and the College by-laws, Council is composed of:
- Nine Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) elected by their peers on a geographical or academic basis; and
- Up to eight public (non RMT) members appointed by the provincial government
Elected members hold office for three years and may stand for re-election twice, for a maximum of nine consecutive years served. Public members generally serve one or two terms or three to six years.
Council members sit on at least one College committee. Each of these has a specific function mandated by the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA). General Council meetings are held at least four times per year at the College office to review the activities of the College and make decisions regarding policy issues.
These meetings are open to all registrants and the public.
