TORONTO, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - As one of the province's largest employers,
Ontario's restaurant industry will be watching tomorrow's budget for
actions that help operators grow their businesses, stimulate job
creation, and display the province's culinary talent. Ontario
restaurateurs will also be paying close attention to any changes to the
minimum wage, which would affect their labour costs and ability to
create more jobs, especially for youth.
Garth Whyte, President and CEO of the Canadian Restaurant and
Foodservices Association (CRFA), and Stephanie Jones, CRFA's
Vice-President, Ontario and Sustainability, will be at Queen's Park
tomorrow and available for comment on the Ontario budget.
Ontario's $25-billion restaurant industry is the fourth-largest
private-sector employer with more than 425,000 direct jobs, and is the
number one source of first jobs.
