Our action
Restaurants Canada is meeting with Ministers in the new NDP government to talk about issues that impact you, such as the upcoming liquor policy review, nutrition information, possible new environmental regulations and Employment Standards. Our first private meeting is with the Alberta Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour Minister Sigurdson on Aug. 4.

Federally, Restaurants Canada is educating election candidates on three priority issues – the labour shortage, credit card fees and Trans Pacific Partnership talks. We urge you to use our handy information sheets to talk about these issues with candidates campaigning in your area.
