CanGift's Safety First Reopening Plan

In preparation for our community once again coming together, the Canadian Gift Association (CanGift) is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment. Together with our facility partner, the Toronto Congress Centre and their C.H.A.S.E.™ program, as well as our suppliers, we are taking aggressive steps to protect everyone who attends our markets.

This document will detail the measures we have put in place to safeguard the health of all stakeholders — exhibitors, retailers, suppliers and staff to combat the spread and prevention of COVID-19 and what you can expect at the Spring 2022 Toronto Gift + Home Market. These practices may be updated as government and public health regulations change.
