FIC Members Seek Temporary Rent Relief
Edmonton – (March 30, 2020) Fitness Industry Council of Canada (FIC), the trade association representing over 5,000 fitness businesses who serve over 4 million members nationwide, is issuing an urgent appeal to government at all levels across Canada for emergency support.
In the wake of unprecedented fitness business closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FIC members are asking provincial governments for help in the form of rent abatement until facilities can responsibly be reopened. With clubs closed and membership dues suspended, many facility owners will have difficulty paying end-of-month operational expenses, including rent, and seek temporary abatement to help them financially survive.
