Skills Development Fund

The Réseau offers its members a Skills Development Fund. This financial support program aims to support our members in their professional development by promoting access to continuing education. Thanks to this financial support, members can obtain all the tools they need to improve their services. Among other things, these grants allow members to specialize and develop skills in the field of massage therapy.

Every year, the Réseau allots a substantial budget set by the Board of Directors to its grant program. For the current year, the entire amount allocated to the program has already been spent or promised to members. However, you can register on our waiting list. This way, even though we cannot guarantee you the grant, you will still be able to benefit from it if the number of withdrawals from people with accepted applications allows us to reach your application.

The Fund allows members who wish to enroll in one of the training options to continue to receive a grant. This financial support is equivalent to 50% of the pre-tax price of the training, up to a maximum of $200. The member is limited to a single grant application per year. Once the eligibility period begins on May 1st of each year, members can apply for a grant for training that takes place at any time before February 28th of the following year.

Eligibility Requirements

In order to obtain a grant from the Réseau, you must:

  • Be a regular member of the Réseau;
  • Choose a technique of less than 150 hours in continuing education that is recognized by the Réseau;
  • Apply for a grant before training;
  • Attend the chosen training in an academic institution recognized and verified by the Réseau des massothérapeutes professionnels du Québec;
  • Pass the training.

Once you obtain a grant, you will receive the reimbursement form by email. Reimbursement claims must be submitted a maximum of 60 days following the completion of the training, and by February 28th, 2022. Please note that refunds are issued by cheque.


The grant amount to which a member is entitled to may be limited if they find themselves in one of the following situations:

  • If a therapist resumes his or her status as a regular member during the contribution year after having received the status of support member, parental member, or if he or she reenrolled, the maximum amount of their grant will be equivalent to 50% of the contribution amount paid for the current year;
  • If a therapist joins the Réseau during the contribution year and has not paid the amount equivalent to a full year of contribution, the maximum amount of their grant will be equivalent to the amount of the contribution paid for the current year.

Steps to Follow

  • Choose a technique in continuing education recognized by the Réseau and offered by one of the recognized and verified academic institutions.
  • Send a grant application.
  • Once the grant is approved, take the training.
  • Complete the reimbursement form provided by the Réseau by email and include the training invoice as well as the certificate or diploma and transcript.

*Please note that the form is only available in French. 

Training for the year 2021-2022

For any claim for reimbursement for training that takes place between March 1, 2021 and February 28, 2022, you will only be able to fill out the grant application form from May 1, 2021.

If your training takes place in March or April, you must apply between May 1 and May 15, 2021. All applications for training given in March or April will be automatically rejected after this period.

Please note that applications for courses that start before February 28 and end after March 1 are automatically rejected.
