Minister of Education Isabelle Charest made the announcement in a June 18 press conference. She said schools in Quebec will decide what to offer during the daily extracurricular school hour, as well as when to offer it during the day.
Montreal Weights wants to inspire people to maintain their physical and mental fitness within the comfort of their own homes, so they truly offer something for everyone no matter their favourite type of workout routine.
The reason the Montreal-based company is able to offer such affordable prices (you can get resistance bands for $24.99 and a spin bike for under $400) is because of its well-established network of international contacts. By importing without any middlemen, the company is able to offer its items at the best possible prices.
And right now, they're offering a $50 discount on orders of $400 or more using the promo code MTLBLOG50. They also deliver anywhere in Canada — right to your door — no matter where you're located.
New products are added to their inventory every week, so whether you're looking to improve your cardio or lift some weights, you'll find what you need on the Montreal Weights website.
If you'd rather check out the equipment in person and get advice on which products are right for you, the Montreal Weights showroom is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day.
Montreal Weights wants to offer its customers maximum transparency and the best value on products. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 8,000 clients across the country have used and loved the company's products and services.
Of course, this Canadian brand intends to remain in business once the pandemic ends, so you can continue to upgrade your home gym and stay fit even after life returns back to "normal."
Price: Prices vary depending on the product
Address: 433 rue Chabanel O., 293 (Mezzanine 1) and online

Just a short walk away from some of the best galleries, cafes and boutiques that the city has to offer, just imagine spending your weekend perusing all of the art and culture the city has to offer at your fingertips.
Food'elles is a social enterprise that will soon offer eco-responsible takeout and delivery prepared by immigrant, refugee and First Nations women — allowing you to experience the world of food from the comfort of your home.
Saira Amin, a Food'elles chef and a Bahrani immigrant who has lived in Montreal for the last 24 years, told MTL Blog that arriving with her child to Quebec's harsh winter climate and unique culture was a tough adjustment.
The Food'elles team decides on the content of the menu in collaboration with its chefs, according to Papatakis.
"After tasting the specialties of our chefs, we select the dishes that seem most appropriate for our menu. We make sure to offer dishes that meet a wide variety of diets — mainly vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free," said Papatakis.
The Food'elles chefs are cooking at Centrale Culinaire, a collaborative kitchen in the Mile End, until they get their own kitchen. They also used the kitchen at Joverse, an Old Montreal restaurant, for a large holiday order.
Is the service available on food delivery apps?
Papatakis said Food'elles wants to maintain its independence so it will not be offering its services through third-party delivery apps like Uber Eats and Foodora, which take up to 30% of profits in commission fees.
"We want as much of the money paid by our customers as possible to be reinvested in activities that serve our social mission," she said.
Food'elles will offer specials that change regularly with vegetarian and vegan options. It asks customers to order in advance for delivery the following week.
It also offers catering for corporate and other occasions.
Papatakis said Food'elles is in the process of creating its own website where customers will be able to order its food.
The website is expected to be functional by February 2021.
In the meantime, Papatakis has launched a crowdfunding campaign with the objective of raising $10,000. If the goal is reached, Food'elles will get an additional $10,000 thanks to the Mille et UN fund for youth.
