What is the Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy?

The Canadian Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (CAMFT) is the national non-profit association representing Couple/Marriage and Family Therapists in Canada.

The CAMFT is comprised of student, affiliate, associate and RMFT members and has a mandate to promote the profession of Couple/Marriage and Family Therapy in Canada.

Benefits of being a member of the CAMFT


Credentialing The CAMFT is the sole entity to provide the highly respected and rigorous RMFT credential.

Insurance Since 1995 CAMFT members have received competitive rates for high quality  professional liability insurance through McFarlan Rowlands.


Advocacy & Lobbying The CAMFT has successfully lobbied for the inclusion of RMFTs as recognized service providers for Canadian veterans and active service personnel through Medavie/Blue Cross. The CAMFT continues to push for broad inclusion of RMFTs in third party payments plans.


Connection CAMFT works hard to provide information and training  to members to increase  skills and knowledge.  As the association representing relational therapists, we are committed to providing only the best quality national conferences, workshops and networking opportunities for our members.


Helping Clients Find You. The CAMFT has created the “Find a Canadian Registered Marriage and Family Therapist locator as a free benefit for CAMFT members to connect  to members of the public seeking the professional services of a relationship expert.  In addition to a free practice listing, the CAMFT offers free classified listings and job postings for its members.

Raising our ProfileMFTs have often been overshadowed by larger professional groups such as social workers and psychologists despite our rigorous level of training and ethical standards. The CAMFT is working hard to increase the profile and recognition of our professionals. We have hosted, networked, presented and exhibited in Niagara Falls, Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa to name a few locales. If you have an event where you want to profile the CAMFT and/or RMFTs, let us know so we can provide people, resources and materials to spread the word!

Please stay tuned and stay connected with us – we will be sending out information on a regular basis to keep you informed and to offer support for your work as an MFT. We also want to hear from you!
