Position: Human Resources Manager
Organization: Fork On The Road
Location: virtual position. Most of the work needs to be done in EST time, so candidates from Ontario or Quebec are preferred
Fork On The Road (Background)
Fork On The Road is a non-profit organization that helps restaurants navigate the upcoming federal ban on harmful single-use plastics. We facilitate connections with suppliers and manufacturers, and host panels with industry stakeholders (waste managers, environmental groups, and government) who are collectively shaping this evolving legislation.
In October 2020, the Federal Government announced a comprehensive plan that includes banning harmful single-use plastic items like bags, utensils, and straws, in face of the new regulation to achieve zero plastic waste by the end of 2030.
A key part of the plan is a ban on harmful single-use plastic items where there is evidence that they are found in the environment, are often not recycled, and have readily available alternatives. Based on those criteria, the six items the Government proposes to ban are plastic checkout bags, straws, stir sticks, six-pack rings, cutlery, and food ware made from hard-to-recycle plastics.
There is concern on the financial vulnerability of restaurant owners with the added costs this transition may bring during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the increased amount of waste being generated as delivery and pick-up become more prevalent.
Our mission at FOTR is to ensure restaurants in Canada are best equipped with knowledge, support and resources to successfully make this transition, addressing both their financial concerns and environmental responsibilities. We believe in sustainability and understand the need to address it with informed decision-making ability for our business community.
