We commend Premier Pallister for upholding his commitment and making Manitoba an example for other jurisdictions to follow.”

Restaurants Canada looks forward to continuing its work with Manitoba’s government to further improve policies impacting licensed foodservice businesses so that they can better serve their customers.
