Toronto – Restaurants Canada is partnering with AMK Global Group to help streamline the recruitment and immigration process at an affordable rate and help members fill empty positions efficiently.

AMK is an immigration and recruitment company based in Canada and the U.K. that specializes in assisting hospitality employers in recruiting staff from around the world and supporting them through the complexities of the Canadian immigration process.

Fully registered with the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants and the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council, the group is respected by hospitality brands who rely on the company to locate talent in both the restaurant and the hotel industries, Restaurants Canada said in a news release.

“Canada’s food-service sector relies heavily on welcoming new Canadians, and even more so now with the labour shortage our industry has found itself in as we rebuild post-pandemic; however, we’ve heard from our members that the process of recruiting from outside of the country can be incredibly lengthy, costly and at times complicated,” said Christian Buhagiar, president and CEO of Restaurants Canada. “Given this feedback, it was important for us to bring forward a partnership that can support members in streamlining this process at an affordable rate to ensure our members can fill empty positions efficiently. We’re excited about working with AMK Global Group and know our sector will benefit greatly from the services they offer.”

As found in Restaurants Canada’s latest Restaurants Outlook Survey: Q4 2022, tackling the labour shortage crisis will be among the top priorities for food-service operators in 2023, with 53 per cent of respondents looking to attract or hire new staff, and operators sharing that they have been forced to reduce operating hours to account for the lack of staff.

“AMK Global Group is thrilled to announce a formal partnership with Restaurants Canada which will facilitate introductions between all Restaurant Canada members and our company in locating internationally sourced hospitality talent,” said San Mahajan, Founder and CEO, AMK Global Group. “The number one challenge for hospitality providers in today’s marketplace is the sourcing and retention of staff. AMK Global Group offers the solution to this persistent issue with a turnkey service assisting in all aspects of the complexities in recruitment. We are professional, knowledgeable and affordable: saving providers their most crucial resource – time.”
