COVID-19 – GoodLife Fitness Health & Wellness Leadership Summit Halifax May 12, 2020 

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have been carefully monitoring the progression of the virus and closely following the advice of Canada’s public health authorities.

As the virus continues to spread in communities across Canada, and with Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer raising the public risk to ‘serious,’ we have decided to postpone the GoodLife Fitness Health & Wellness Leadership Summit scheduled in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Tuesday May 12th, 2020

We expect the event to be rescheduled, and we look forward to hosting you at this event on the rescheduled date once it is confirmed.

Organizations and individuals who have purchased tickets to the Halifax event will receive a full refund and will be notified of the rescheduled date.

Our purpose has always been to give every Canadian the opportunity to live a fit and healthy life. There is no moment in our history where that purpose is more important than today.

Thank you for your understanding and please take care of yourself and each other.
