Restaurant Realities: Raising Our Voice in Alberta

Since 2015, a perfect storm of operational cost increases from legislative and regulatory changes, combined with a weak provincial economy, have contributed to the following setbacks for Alberta’s restaurants:

  • A loss of 10,000 foodservice and accommodation jobs
  • A decline in the average number of workers per unit from 13 to 11.7
  • A 9.1 per cent drop in average sales per unit (adjusted for menu inflation)

Alberta’s next government has an opportunity to improve conditions for foodservice businesses so that they can continue contributing to vibrant communities. As election day approaches, we encourage you to contact candidates and engage your network with the information below.

Together we can make our voice heard!
