Culinary Frontiers: Canada's Restaurant Industry and the Road Ahead.
The Canadian restaurant industry, currently valued at 96.74 billion USD in 2023 and projected to triple by 2029, is witnessing rapid growth, primarily driven by the prevalence of quick-service restaurants responding to the post-pandemic demand for fast and convenient meals. However, this expansion is hindered by significant labor shortages, prompting an increased reliance on international workers to meet staffing needs.
As the industry navigates these challenges, with 16% of Canadians dining out daily in 2021 and a rising preference for food trucks and cloud kitchens, entrepreneurial opportunities are emerging. Acknowledging the pivotal role of the restaurant sector in the Canadian economy, the government is actively implementing measures to address labor shortages and foster economic and geopolitical stability, envisioning a more optimistic industry outlook by 2025.
