Dear Valued TFI Members and Friends,
We are facing unprecedented times and being faced with situations that we could not have imagined. In an effort to keep you and our TFI community safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, effective March 16, 2020 we are initiating the following measures:
1. TFI's administrative staff will be working remotely from home until further notice and will be available by email in case you need to reach us.
As our physical space is closed, access to reception services and the TFI Resource Centre will not be available during this time. Please do not phone us
as there will not be anyone available to return your call.
2. If you are a current TFI member, or planning to join TFI now, as a courtesy to you, we are EXTENDING all current memberships by one month at no cost to you, to compensate for our temporary admin office closure.
3. If you are inquiring about your online order, TFI Shop
orders will continue to be fulfilled within 4 business days unless otherwise posted. Please note that orders will be sent electronically to the email address you provided so please enter a valid email address when placing your order.
4. If you are a TFI member and wish to schedule a Mentor Consultation, please email us
. Mentor meetings will continue to be scheduled however only phone or video calls will be arranged. This means we are temporarily suspending IN-PERSON mentor consultations.
Please read the Mentor Consultation Guideline document in the "About Us > Mentor Profile
" section at fashionincubator.com
to learn about scheduling, cancelling, missing and/or not using up consultation time.
5. After reading the Mentor Consultation Guidelines, download, complete and email us
your TFI Consultation Request Form. You can also review profiles of our dedicated volunteer mentors there.
6. Until further notice, all onsite meetings with TFI residents must be postponed until the building re-opens.
Thank you for your attention and understanding.
Stay well and be safe.
From the staff and Board at Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI)
