Restaurants are key to restoring Canada's economy and reviving main streets across the country, but first they need to survive.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, foodservice was the fastest-growing industry in Canada, generating $95 billion in sales in 2019. Now at least a quarter of restaurants are at risk of closing due to crushing debt from operating at a loss for months on end.
Help us keep local restaurants in the picture.
A vibrant foodservice sector is integral to Canada's social and economic fabric. When restaurants thrive, so do the communities they call home.
Restaurants are going to need help until they are on a path to full recovery so that they can continue contributing to jobs, economic growth and vibrant neighbourhoods across the country.
Working together with Restaurants Canada, all levels of government can help foodservice businesses continue playing an integral part of the social and economic fabric of our communities.
