We have a letter to various levels of government outlining our demands and the needs of our industry in this crisis. You can see our full letter here.

We are uniting to demand relief for our industry, which we built to be the social, emotional, and physical backbone for so many Canadians. A united voice will be instrumental in weathering this crisis together.

It's our responsibility now to do whatever we can to make sure we are still here when this crisis passes. Join today, and leave a comment to tell us how your practice has been affected.

    Have lost 95% of my business and do not qualify for CERB because I still want to be there for the few patients in need so ethically will not be able to stop working for 14 days. Landlord will not give my business a break on rent.

    We are a brand new fitness club in Toronto and we were supposed to open in April.

    As our entire business model is based on membership and class sales, we are left with zero cash flow to pay our rent and other expenses.

    Furthermore, we do not qualify for Canada Emergency Loan for businesses as we do not have any sales in the past 12 months.

    Thank you

    Like everyone , I have had to close my practice. The office housed 7 other sub-contracted RMT’s who are now all out of work. At the rate this is going, if I am unable to reopen and start working again by May, and I am not able to get financial assistance, I will probably have to close my doors permanently.

    Our studio also had to layoff all staff and instructors due to the Covid shutdown. My bike lease company is still requiring monthly payments. My landlord is still asking for a reduced rate but without any streams of revenue, this is impossible to do.
