Regulate Massage Therapy

Provincial Election Platform Policy

An Alberta Party-led government will regulate the profession of massage therapy to ensure the protection of Albertans by regulating it under the Health professions Act.

An Alberta Party government would implement the establishment of a regulatory college of massage therapy in Alberta consistent with that of the other health professions covered under the Health Professions Act. This would make Alberta the sixth provincial health agency in Canada to regulate massage therapy.

This will finally implement the recommendations put forth by then Health Minister Ron Liepert in 2009.

The Alberta Party is committed to ensuring all Albertans have access to appropriate care in a safe environment.
