“By passing legislation to make the delivery fee cap a permanent support for restaurants, we’re leading Canada in providing more stability and certainty to the sector itself, and to the delivery drivers who work within it,” B.C.’s Minister of Jobs, Economic Recovery and Innovation, Ravi Kahlon, said in a press release.

The cap limits the fees delivery companies can charge restaurants to no more than 20 per cent of the dollar value of an order. The province said this is similar to similar permanent caps enacted by U.S. cities Seattle and San Francisco.
