About MTAA

The mission of the MTAA is to promote excellence in music therapy practice, education, and development, to further public awareness of music therapy in Alberta, and to serve as an organizational agency for its members.


The MTAA represents certified music therapists at the provincial level. Provincial chapters must operate in accordance with the Canadian Association of Music Therapists (the CAMT) code of ethics and standards of practice, and all active voting members of these chapters must be members in good standing of the CAMT.
