Event Description:
What: Restaurant owners, operators, Chefs and cooks in Greater Vancouver are invited to listen to, and weigh in on, the results of the BCRFA’s six months of research, analysis, and recommendations.
The BC Restaurant and Food Services Association has been studying the skills gap and employment shortage in Vancouver area restaurants, funded by the Employment Program of BC.
Why: Visa Canada estimates 60 per cent of Canadians now eat out at least once a week. As a result, new restaurants and foodservice operations are opening. Our industry is growing and we need more qualified staff to join our teams.
The goal for the forum is to provide attendees with:
  • Current labour shortage market assessment;
  • Strategies to improve your recruitment/retention;
  • Employment needs of new generations of workers;
  • Benefits of creating a culture that values work/life balance; and
  • Recommendations for next steps to Government of BC.
