Founded in 2006, the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy (VCMT) is dedicated to excellence in education, and to leading the profession by better educating our students in not only academic and practical skills, but in professionalism. 

VCMT takes a holistic approach to massage therapy education, based on the three pillars of academic, practical, and professional excellence. Our work is guided by the values of respect, passion, integrity and compassion, and our high program standards are designed to ensure each of our graduates are well rounded and have the knowledge, experience and professional skills you need to succeed and thrive in the massage therapy profession.

VCMT is Designated by the Private Training Institutions Branch of the Ministry of Advanced Education (PTIB) and the massage therapy program has been Approved by the PTIB registrar. We are also Recognized by the College of Massage Therapists of British Columbia (CMTBC), making VCMT a fully accredited massage therapy school in British Columbia.

We maintain designation with the Education Quality Assurance (EQA) program as evidence that we meet or exceed the quality assurance standards set by the province of B.C. This designation allows students be confident that they will receive a quality learning experience at VCMT. It also allows VCMT to host international students on study permits and be listed as a Designated Learning Institute (DLI) in Canada.

Our mission is to provide a superior education in a supportive and collaborative learning environment. We combine comprehensive knowledge, a wealth of experience and integrity to achieve excellence in education in preparing graduates for a successful career as an RMT.
