    Although deemed essential as a sole proprietor without staff I have ceased all non essential care and am only treating emergencies. I have overhead to pay and a family to support yet the government has not qualified me for any support. My business income is less than 10%, without any forgiveness from my landlord for rent and TMI. How do I pay overhead and support a family?

    I’ve owned my tanning studio for over 10 years and our 11,000+ clients depend on us for their dose of vitamin D to feel and look their best. We closed our doors because of COVID-19 just before being mandated to do so, and as a service based storefront, this means no traffic to our studio and no revenue coming in. The landlord is still demanding rent and our usual bills for hydro, etc are piling up. Unfortunately, we are unable to meet these demands and are there is no option to virtually run the studio in our case. It’s a pretty devastating reality to face.

    I do a mixture of online training/personal development coaching, as well as training out of Milton Muay Thai.


    Since this whole thing started, the doors closed, and my work has been drastically reduced.

    We opened our doors April 1st 2019. We are incorporated and pay taxes. We do not meet requirements for funding for the business nor personal. I don’t know how our business will survive another month without sacrificing my personal needs, such as shelter and food. It’s a scary time. And I’m doing everything I can to stay positive. But it’s hard.

    Having to close our business doors instantly and having no additional source of income other than CERB (that will only cover 70 percent of my living expenses), I am worried about covering even one month of my business costs to keep my health clinic open.

    I have lost every client I spent the last 20 years building I imagine some will return and some won’t and or will be slow to return and or people have taken my services into their own hands all at once. I support shut down but need relief to not pay bills and interest when no the money given by the government doest even pay a mortgage payment. And as an owner of an excavation coronation as well wsib should definitely not be collecting at this time.
