CMTA Pre-Budget Submission to FINA

The focus of this year’s consultations is on post-pandemic economic recovery. While some of our arguments for GST/HST exemption remain the same, we took this opportunity to highlight what has changed as a result of the pandemic and how exempting the tax massage on therapy services will help will help our profession to get back on their feet.

The main themes captured in our submission include:

  • Massage therapists are an important part of the health care team
  • Massage therapists improve patient health and wellbeing
  • Supporting small business owners
  • Affordable access to massage therapy
  • Protecting patients
