Government Announces Caps on Food Delivery Fees

Released on March 24, 2021

The Government of Saskatchewan is capping fees on food delivery charges to support restaurants in the province.

"Our restaurant sector has been especially challenged by the economic impacts of COVID-19 and this is one more way we are working with industry to support this important sector and the jobs it provides," Trade and Export Development Minister Jeremy Harrison said.  "These caps will mean more money remains with small businesses and I encourage all Saskatchewan residents to continue to support their local restaurants."

Delivery fees will be capped at 18 per cent of a customer's pre-tax order if the food delivery service provider completes the delivery and 10 per cent on the purchase price if a customer picks up from the restaurant.

"This is terrific news for the industry," Hospitality Saskatchewan President and CEO Jim Bence said.  "These are extremely difficult times for hospitality, especially in Regina right now, and further demonstrates the government's unwavering commitment to our sector."

This cap will apply to third-party delivery providers that serve more than 50 restaurants across the province.  This will be enforced by Minister's Order under The Emergency Planning Act and be in effect from March 28, 2021, to April 30, 2021.

This cap on delivery fees is in addition to previous supports provided by the provincial government.  These include the Small Business Emergency Payment, which has been extended for those businesses affected by recent expanded Public Health Orders, the Strong Recovery Adaptation Rebate and the Re-Open Saskatchewan Training Subsidy.
