Top reasons for joining Canada’s culinary industry

There has never been a better time to pursue a culinary career in Canada.

1. Canada’s emerging culinary landscape.

The Canadian culinary world is continually expanding and evolving. A new breed of Canadian chefs is revisiting traditional recipes with increasingly creative and sophisticated techniques that give a second life to ingredients that abound across the Canadian landscape. Plus Canada’s celebrated immigration of ethnicities from around the world has created a palate for diverse cultural influences and creative fusions.

2. Amazing ingredients!

From the Atlantic, to the Pacific, to the Arctic coastline (and everywhere in-between) small scale Canadian farmers, fisheries and ranchers are embracing refined, sustainable farming techniques and wild caught and ethically raised proteins. If you think Canadian cuisine is all about maple syrup and poutine, then think again!

3. A broad scope of career opportunities.

Whether you’re looking to join a bustling downtown restaurant, an exclusive wilderness resort in a spectacular setting or a prestigious international hotel property, Homard Bleu Talent has a career opportunity that will be perfect for your career and your lifestyle.

4. Quality of life and endless recreational opportunities.

It’s no secret – Canada consistently ranks as one of the world’s top countries for quality of life. We enjoy getting outside just as much as we love gathering friends around a table to savour local specialities, regional wines and craft beers. We believe that life is about equal measures of work and play.
