Cancelling Fitness Contract

I’m looking to cancel a GoodLife memership. I mas reading over the contract and I think I am able to do it under the Consumer Protection Act of 2002 without penalty.

I got the membership on the 4th. I have until the 14th right

Here is the excerpt from the internet as it is exactly on my “contract” with GoodLife also:


Your Rights under the Consumer Protection Act, 2002

[i]
You may cancel this agreement at any time during the period that ends ten (10) days after the day you receive a written copy of the agreement. You do not need to give the supplier a reason for cancelling during this 10-day period.

In addition, there are other grounds that allow you to cancel this agreement. You may also have other rights, duties and remedies at law. For more information, you may contact the Ministry of Consumer and Business Services.

To cancel this agreement, you must give notice of cancellation to the supplier, at the address set out in the agreement, by any means that allows you to prove the date on which you gave notice. If no address is set out in the agreement, use any address of the supplier that is on record with the Government of Ontario or the Government of Canada or is known by you.

If you cancel this agreement, the supplier has fifteen (15) days to refund any payment you have made and return to you all goods delivered under a trade-in arrangement (or refund an amount equal to the trade-in allowance).

Membership “contract” for one year of membership.

Goodlife is a chain of gyms here in Canada. So he is just talking about cancelling his membership which he just signed up for.

To the OP, yes, you can cancel a member ship within 10 days of signing up.

Without any of those BS fees? And I get a refund. Right?

As stated by the above excerpt from the Consumer Protection Act.

When I cancelled my goodlife membership (after 2 months) I had the option of paying a $100 fee. I managed to avoid it as I knew one of the girls who worked there. You should be in the clear though is you are within 10 days.
