Regulation in Alberta

Alberta’s Massage Therapists are on their way to being members of a regulated health profession!

Announced in late April, Alberta’s Minister of Health and Wellness is prepared to recommend to Cabinet that the Health Professions Act be amended to include Massage Therapists as a regulated profession. The Minister will be recommending that a single category model of regulation based on the proposed 2009 national competency model, or its successor, and that approved education programmes must be a minimum of 2,200 hours.
