As the re-elected federal government continues to work through the process of setting up their cabinets and mandates to confirm the new government’s agenda, we have continued to press on with our advocacy efforts.

We have sent a letter to Liberal Party leader and recently re-elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. We congratulated him on is win but to also shared the importance of our sector as a key pillar in building back a stronger, more sustainable economy for our post-pandemic future.

In addition, we highlighted our call urging the government to extend both the rent and wage subsidies through to April 2022. Similar letters with the call-to-actions of supporting our foodservice sector were also sent to Conservative Leader, Erin O'Toole and the NPD's Jagmeet Singh.

We will be working to ensure that all the policy pledges they put forward to help our hardest-hit sector will remain on the table for the re-elected government.
