The landscape of a world coping with the effects of of COVID-19 is rapidly changing. We all have questions surrounding COVID-19 and how it has the potential to touch all aspects of our lives – personal, financial and professional.
The Chef Alliance has plans to be here for you when you need us - to answer questions and assist our members. We ask for your patience and understanding if there are delays in our responses due to the higher-than-normal volume of staff-client interactions.
Our member benefit partner, Restaurants Canada, is advocating for governmental assistance for all foodservice businesses affected by COVID-19 across Canada. Updates can be found on their website. If your membership with The Chef Alliance does not include membership in Restaurants Canada, this can be added at any time - simply contact our office for details.
