canfitpro FIS course & Exam






In light of the recent global outbreak of the Coronavirus, canfitpro is continuing to closely monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19.
In Canada, the public health risk associated with COVID-19 is low; however, it is imperative that as health and fitness leaders, we work towards protecting Canadian Fitness Professionals (and education is key). It’s important as fitness professionals that we lead by example through maintaining our exercise regimes and healthy nutrition practices as we know both help to support a healthy immune system. Together, let’s encourage people to continue to work out and to pursue personal and professional fitness endeavors, while ensuring they are provided with correct information on how to protect themselves and stay healthy.
The health, safety and well-being of canfitpro Associates, Members, and Delegates is our highest priority. Mindful of our duty of care, we remain watchful as we proceed with delivering our programs, services, education and events.
At this time, canfitpro's regional events in Montreal, Winnipeg, and Halifax will continue to take place as scheduled. We care about you, our members, and we want to assure you that we are taking the necessary precautions to support your health and safety. We are closely monitoring the unfolding situation with COVID-19 and following all recommended measures, protocols, and health guidelines to maximize overall safety.
To address many of the questions that you may have or be asked about, we have prepared a “Frequently Asked Questions” that you can refer to here, with responses to provide all our Members with the most accurate information possible. When, and as circumstances change, additional guidance and direction will be offered via postings on our websites, social media outlets, and other public releases.
Thank you for staying in touch as we work together to create a positive and safe environment for you, your family, and your members’ and clients’ families.

Yours in Health and Fitness, 

Maureen (Mo) Hagan
Chief Operating Officer
