|About - Towards the Future||The RMTAO unveils its Strategic Plan for the profession in conjunction with the CMTO; the OCPTMC; and the HMT.|
What is unique about this plan is that it is not associated with one specific organization but rather, it has been created jointly by all of the leadership organizations with the profession of massage therapy, including:
As a profession, we are proud of our contribution to society. Through our strategic planning process, we fully recognize that we are a credible, viable, and sustainable profession.
Our vision, Valued Professionals, Compassionate Care, Optimizing Health for Life, is a powerful and enabling statement of our aspirations as a profession.
We are Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) working in a system where we optimize the health of the whole person for the life of the person.

We know that achieving our vision, strategic themes, and short-term deployment priorities will be a daunting task. We are, however, up for the challenge. It is our desire and our passion to ensure that our profession continues to enhance its credibility and embrace all future opportunities to fully integrate into Ontario’s health and wellness sector. In order to achieve the strategy, significant engagement will be required by all members of the profession.
This plan establishes broad goals or end states to which the leadership organizations within the profession will be moving towards collectively. In the coming days, months, and years, details about specific initiatives will be made available to the profession with many opportunities to become involved to move the plan forward.
A copy of the plan was mailed to all members of the profession and to key stakeholders. The RMTAO is also pleased to make a copy of the Strategic Plan - 2009 Report available in both English and French as a download.
The RMTAO exists in order to advance the massage therapy profession in Ontario. Improvements in the ability of Registered Massage Therapists to provide quality care will improve the health of the people of Ontario whom the profession serves.
