February 5, 2024

The College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) is looking for non-Board Members to serve on CMTO’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee for a nine (9) month term with the potential for reappointment.

What is the role of EDI Committee non-Board Members?  

As part of our current Strategic Plan, CMTO included a dedicated goal on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. CMTO has committed to embedding EDI into our organizational programs and processes and reporting publicly on our EDI progress.

EDI Committee Members will support this strategic goal and CMTO’s commitment to promoting and upholding the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion in their practices, policies, and programs. This will be accomplished through identifying and recommending to the CMTO Board projects and initiatives that support the strategic focus on EDI.
