Graduates from Collège Boréal's massage therapy program now have the title of Accredited Massage Therapist in the province of Quebec thanks to an agreement with the Fédération québécoise des massothérapeutes (FQM).

The agreement allows the students exemptions from examination of provincial competencies. It applies immediately to past and present Boréal massage therapy grads.

“This strong working relationship with the FQM could eventually lead to a greater sharing of French-language pedagogical and teaching resources,” said Kim Morris, dean of the college's school of health sciences.

“By bringing competency profiles and its particular clinical approach to the table, Collège Boréal could eventually enhance this collaboration with FQM. Indeed, we are proud of this first step we are taking and truly believe that it will lead to the development of a greater partnership benefitting Francophones in both provinces.”

“This rich collaboration demonstrates that the Fédération québécoise des massothérapeutes is willing to work more closely with young graduates from other provinces,” said Sylvie Bédard, FQM’s CEO.

“These young professionals will not only benefit from quality education and training in French, but also from the notoriety and credibility emanating from the FQM as a whole. Indeed, we would like to thank Collège Boréal for their innovative and visionary approach.”
