Ontario minimum wage forum: What we learned

Published September 8, 2017

Big and small restaurateurs and foodservice companies took part in Restaurants Canada’s minimum wage forum on Sept. 6. It was a chance for foodservice professionals to discuss how

Ontario’s drastic minimum wage hike would affect their businesses.

Highlights

  • Restaurants Canada shared the mitigation measures it’s proposing to government. We want solutions that help restaurants stay in business and save jobs amidst this massive minimum wage hike.
  • President of the Canadian Centre for Economic Analysis, Paul Smetanin, told us the negative effects of the minimum wage increase are real. He gave foodservice companies options to address the $1.3 billion hole next year.
  • Our partners at Crestview Strategies are designing a portal to help you tell your stories directly to policymakers.
