Thank You for Participating in MRT Week 2023 from November 5-11
MRT Week is an annual celebration (which falls on the week of November 8th every year) of the essential role that medical radiation technologists (MRTs) play in the healthcare system. MRTs deliver professional imaging and radiation-related treatment services with a caring touch, allowing patients to fully benefit from the latest in medical diagnostic and treatment technology.
Over the years, MRT Week has been an amazing success, with thousands of MRTs participating across hundreds and hundreds of centres. CAMRT’s National Awareness campaign has been a great success these last few years – a recent Nanos poll of the Canadian public showed that 8 out of 10 Canadians are now at least somewhat familiar with the role MRTs play in their healthcare.

We want to offer a special thank you to our two webinar sponsors for MRT Week 2023:
MRT Week Contests!
All Contests are now closed. We had amazing participation in our photo contest. Over 100 PEOPLE participated in CAMRT’s, “Tell me you’re an MRT, without telling me you’re an MRT” challenge. Thank you to all who participated.
National MRT Awareness Campaign
This year there were 3.8 MILLION ad impressions for the national awareness campaign to spread awareness about the AMAZING work you do every single day. Thanks to the many MRTs who joined us by placing posters prominently at their sites before during and after MRT Week, and by helping to amplify the awareness push.
