To Our Wonderful Community, Thank You!

We are so grateful to announce that Shift Collab has won three 2021 Toronto Star Readers’ Choice Awards! We are a three-time Diamond Winner of the Best Therapy Practice, Best Wellness Service, and Best Professional Service. This is a big honour. These awards are especially meaningful to us because they are selected by you — the readers!

The Toronto Star launched the Reader's Choice Awards to find and showcase some of the top people and businesses in Toronto and the GTA. Toronto Star readers nominate and vote on their favourite businesses throughout the summer. Nearly 90,000 votes were cast and counted in determining Toronto’s best-of-the-best businesses, services and professionals. That fact makes this win all the more meaningful to us. So again, thanks to everyone who took the time to nominate and vote for Shift. It’s much appreciated. Shift wouldn’t be what it is today without your hard work, dedication, and trust.

Every vote helps us advance our mission and reach more people with relatable therapy in a sustainable way. The more support we get, the more we can make a bigger impact in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. It’s another building block in creating a sustainable, 100-year business that’s dedicated to making therapy accessible and human.

Making a meaningful impact in our incredible community is the inspiration behind building Shift in the first place. Since the beginning, we treat every client as if they’re a friend to us. Our top referral source (by far) is friends and family. As Shifts stretches out coast-to-coast, we reflect on the values that have created such a strong community in the GTA:

  • We speak up in our industry and regularly advocate for positive policy and regulatory changes to increase access to care and fight for what’s right.
  • Every month, we provide a ton of free and low-cost therapy to individuals in need and support local charities too.
  • We’re dedicated to community education, leading countless free workshops and sharing helpful content on our Mood Boost Monday digest that's read by thousands of people all over the world.
  • We’re a good corporate citizen offering our team great wages, access to healthcare benefits, flexible work, and lots of growth.

These are the values that bring us together, and the values that create meaningful change. There are not enough words to express how grateful we are for your support over the past five years. We hope we have made you proud, helped you feel supported, pushed you to grow and allowed you space to be you. When it comes down to it, that’s what success means in our books.

Megan and Jordan, Co-ounder's of Shift say thank you.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for supporting us on this journey.
