Application for GST Exemption
LCSP Canadian Branch would like to congratulate the Prince Edward Island Massage Therapy Association (PEIMTA) on achieving inclusion under the Prince Edward Island Regulated Health Professions Act.
In doing so PEI has become the 5th province to achieve massage therapy regulation in Canada.With this momentous announcement, an application can be made to Canada’s Minister of Finance for tax exemption status for the massage therapy profession.
LCSP Canadian Branch would like to thank the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario (RMTAO) for initiating the process toward our application for tax exempt status.
We have been advised by the RMTAO that “obtaining tax exemption for massage therapy will require the support and cooperation of all massage therapists across Canada.” They will be seeking information about massage therapists’ practices and encouraging participation in advocacy initiatives. The LCSP looks forward to working with our members, the RMTAO, our partners in the field of massage therapy, and massage therapists across the country towards the goal of tax exemption for massage therapy
