    First of all I’d like to say thank you for being leaders or and fighters for our community.

    My hot yoga and pilate studio has been closed since March 16th. We have been able to pivot and offer some classes via Zoom, but our revenue is down over 60% and the numbers of classes I am able to offer our incredible instructors is less then 25% of what we could before. We want to continue to be available for our clients, but day by day it is getting increasingly more difficult.

    I run my own business as. a massage therapist, personal trainer and fascial stretch therapist. I am unable to work and literally have no clue when I will. I have kept in contact with clients but it is not the same as the physical and mental hands on work that i provide. I am lost and at a lost. I am continuing to learn for my clients while I’m away but I’m worried I won’t have a job at the end of this.

    We are a very new small corporation who just managed to be able to pay the rent last February. Now no income and not eligible for anything, I can’t support more after this first year. Business was getting better and our athletes remains loyals to their training. We hope there is a solution. Thank you.

    We closed down our home studio in Newmarket Ontario. We still pay full rent here monthly. We closed down services across 4 other locations in Toronto that have been prepaid for studio space in advance. We are unable to provide client services, unable to provide work for our contractors.

    There is no revenue coming in since we were mandated to close. However the rent is still due. With no money coming in to cover expenses we will be forced to close. We do not qualify for any of the government programs and taking on greater debt will just crush us in the long run.

    The health & well being of the families involved in my Judo club is on the decline. I am also not able to receive Chiropractic treatment, nor Physiotherapy/Massage Therapy. These are vital treatments required to maintain my health, due to some birth defects.

    I plead to allow the return of these services!
