Annual Renewal is Now Open
The College of Massage Therapists of Ontario’s (CMTO’s) 2022 registration renewal is now open. All RMTs must renew their registration by November 1, 2021.
What are the fees for 2022 and when are they due?
In keeping with CMTO’s By-Law No. 7, CMTO Council approved an increase to registration fees for General Certificate holders of 1.5% (or $12) for 2022. There is no increase to the Inactive Certificate fee. The renewal fees for 2022 are as follows:
- General Certificate (GC) – $797.00
- Inactive Certificate (IN) – $200.00
CMTO recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic created several challenges for RMTs. CMTO is sensitive to these impacts, and this increase represents CMTO’s balancing of its operating and financial realities with the current challenges faced by the profession.
Completing the Renewal Form
Renewal can be completed online by logging in to the registrant portal.
CMTO’s registrant portal has been updated and you will no longer use your CMTO ID to log in. Instead, please log in using the e-mail address you have on file with CMTO. If this is your first time logging in using your e-mail address, click ‘ACTIVATE NOW’ to complete activation of your CMTO profile in the new portal.
Deadline and Late Fee
Renewals must be completed and received on or before November 1st, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. Renewals received after November 1st, 2021, are subject to a late fee of $100.00.
An RMT’s gender is displayed on the public register in accordance with the By-Law No.8. Currently, an RMT’s gender is displayed on the public register as “male” or “female”. You now have the choice to identify your gender as:
- “M” (generally associated with male);
- “F” (generally associated with female); or
- “X” (not directly associated with male or female, including but not limited to trans, two-spirit, non-binary, and/or binary people).
During this renewal period, you will be able to select the salutation that you wish to have CMTO staff address you by, with the addition of the neutral option “Mx.” Recognition of “X” and “Mx” moves towards more inclusive language at CMTO. While your gender is displayed on CMTO’s public register, the salutation is only for the purpose of communicating with CMTO.
If you encounter any difficulties completing your renewal, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration Services receives a high volume of emails and calls during the renewal period. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
