November 18, 2021

After an extensive national search process, the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO)’s Council is excited to announce that Maureen Boon has accepted the position of Registrar and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) effective November 22, 2021.

Maureen has had a 25 plus year career in the regulatory environment, having held senior positions at the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario, College of Optometrists of Ontario, and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. Maureen brings a strong focus on accountability and the public interest within the health care system. She has extensive experience in organizational leadership, policy, board management, strategic planning/reporting, crisis management and decision-making, with a particular talent for building consensus among stakeholders to develop and complete complex public interest projects. Maureen has a Master of Health Science, Health Administration from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Science, Life Sciences from Queen’s University.

On behalf of Council, I want to welcome and congratulate Maureen on her appointment as Registrar and CEO. We are looking forward to working with her and to her strong leadership on the complex issues facing the regulation of massage therapy in Ontario.

And finally, on behalf of Council I also want to extend our heartfelt thanks and best wishes to our outgoing Registrar and CEO, Corinne Flitton. Under Corinne’s leadership over the last 10 years, CMTO has transformed in all aspects of our policies, operations and systems. Corinne created and delivered a bold vision of CMTO as a modern regulator – one that will continue to evolve and strengthen under the next generation of leadership. We will miss her humour, transparency, and her professional and personal integrity. We wish her all the very best as she embarks on this next chapter of her life.
