Can we help you with your Labour Shortage?

Feb 28, 2018 bcrfauser01

After 6 months of primary research and 3 months of reviewing and understanding our findings, BCRFA is pleased to be sharing the results of our Labour Market Study on the Labour Shortage in Vancouver Area restaurants with our members.

We know that the shortage is really hitting operators in Vancouver hard and we are determined to find ways not only to understand the shortage – but to give operators real solutions that they can apply in their businesses starting tomorrow.

The BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association (BCRFA) received funding from the Employment Program of BC to complete this research. We are so thankful for their support as this work is essential to operators in our region. We thank everyone who invited us into their business, who participated in online surveys and who attended our industry feedback session in January. We couldn’t have done it without you.

The research was consultative, and our findings are the result of outreach to industry professionals over a range of platforms. By first identifying the issues, our report to the restaurant industry examines possible solutions and best practices. For operators facing immediate needs, our report goes into detailed tactics for operators and puts forward industry wide changes that must be considered as part of a long-term strategy.

We hope you will take time to read the report. If you have any questions or feedback, please share them with us. 604.669.2239 or email us – we want to hear from you!
