Membership Information

Our association represents Massage & Manual Osteopathic Therapists only. Our members are highly qualified massage therapists who have obtained a minimum of 2200 hours of education from a recognized massage school, and and manual osteopathic therapists with a minimum 1000 hours and have met the requirements laid out for a WHO Type 2 Osteopathic Therapist. We do not grant equivalency for experience.

Clients who receive treatments from the highly qualified members of CMMOTA will be reimbursed by many major insurance companies such as Sun Life Financial, Green Shield, Blue Cross, Manulife and more. Currently Manual Osteopathic Therapists are recognized by Blue Cross and Manulife. That list will continue to grow as our membership base grows.

We currently have members that practice in Alberta, B.C., Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and Yukon. Our members enjoy the freedom of traveling and working within non-regulated provinces throughout Canada. This removes the hassle of joining new associations in each province.

The membership year for all members is January 1 to December 31. Membership fees for the following year must be paid on or before October 31st of the previous year.

We provide membership options for those actively working in the industry through our Full membership category, membership for students in their second year through our Associate category, and for those who no longer work or require insurance coverage through our Inactive category.

We also have an Honorary membership that is bestowed by the board upon any member or nonmember who has by meritorious service supported the Association and its objectives.

The insurance that is offered exclusively to CMMOTA members is one of the best policies in the industry at one of the best prices. The insurance offered covers Commercial General Liability and Malpractice Liability with the option of additional coverage for equipment, A/R, loss of records, and more.
