Petition to the Minister of Finance

Whereas:
  • Massage therapy is not recognized in the list of professional services rendered by health practitioners in the Excise Tax Act;
  • Canadians are charged HST/GST on massage therapy services;
  • HST/GST fees create an impression of inequality between massage therapists and other health professionals; and
  • Removal of HST/GST on massage therapy services would improve the accessibility and affordability of massage therapy services for Canadians.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Finance to:
1. include the practice of massage therapy in the definition of practitioner within Schedule V of Part II of the Excise Tax Act;
2. add massage therapy services to the list of professional services rendered by practitioners under section 7 of Part II, Schedule V of the Excise Tax Act; and
3. exempt massage therapy services in Canada from HST/GST under the Excise Tax Act.
