Outreach & Advocacy

Through our members' continued feedback on issues that are relevant to them; we're proud to bring these concerns forward to appropriate organizations. It's our hope that a unified OAMHP voice will assist in influencing change that can benefit our membership and, by extension, the people they help.

Below, you'll find the latest public outreach efforts undertaken by the OAMHP.

“The OAMHP is proud to support Bill C-218 and the campaign to remove tax from Psychotherapy services. As you know, counselling therapists and psychotherapists are the only mental health professionals that have to charge GST/HST on their services. Our association is part of a national campaign to encourage the federal government to remove this unfair tax. On September 20, 2022 the campaign was officially launched with a press conference in the House of Commons Press Gallery which you can watch here.

Please visit www.taxfreetherapy.ca to learn about the campaign and to lend your support. On this website you will find an explanation of the issue,  a parliamentary petition you can sign, and a letter you can send to your MP and to the Minister of Finance. The letter will require only 30 seconds of your time to complete.”
