The last few years have undoubtedly been a roller coaster, but the data pointing to the importance of physical activity – and the need for the work we do in the fitness industry – has never been clearer.  Fitness Industry Council of Canada (FIC) is proud to advocate on behalf of our industry. 


FIC recently met with politicians from both federal and provincial health, sports and finance offices to discuss our budget submissions, and the meetings were very productive. This week, association representatives will attend the Global IHRSA conference and trade show in San Diego, where Sara Hodson, President of FIC will be presenting on the State of the Canadian fitness Industry. We will also be gathering facts and data on what is happening in our industry in other parts of the world. 


In meetings with the government, FIC has been asked to share data on our businesses. In order to provide them with the most precise and current information available, we have created this short (3-minute) survey. Please click the button below to go to the survey page:

The data collected will support ongoing advocacy efforts on behalf of health/fitness facility operators.


Moving forward, we will continue to meet with Ministers of Health, Sport & Tourism and Finance to make the Fitness Industry Council’s position stronger than ever. 

Gabriel Hardy is the Executive Director of the Fitness Industry Council Canada, the not-for profit trade association that represents the voice of fitness facility operators across Canada. Representing more than 6,000 facilities with more than six-million members nationwide, FIC pursues a legislative agenda in the hope of bettering the fitness industry for both consumers and operators. FIC aims to work with both industry and government to improve the health and physical activity levels of Canadians.
