If you’re on the job hunt, Chipotle wants your resume. The restaurant chain has announced that all employees in Ontario and British Columbia are getting an increase in minimum pay to $15 and $16 an hour, respectively — the wage bump takes effect today. In Ontario, general minimum wage is currently $14.25 and is set to rise 10 cents on October 1, 2021. In B.C., minimum wage is currently $15.20 per hour.
This comes as the chain announces 6 new locations opening in both provinces by the end of this year, along with its first ‘Chipotlane’ drive-thru in Canada, coming to Port Coquitlam this fall. The digital order lanes are so fast to use that they take under a minute, according to Chipotle.
Plus, there’s a chance to turn your part-time gig into a six-figure salary position in just a few years. Chipotle says that crew members can climb the ranks to the highest General Manager position, which pays over $100,000 per year.

Employees get to take advantage of great benefits and also cash bonuses for referrals. Chipotle staff members will get a $200 bonus for referring a crew member and $750 for referring a General Manager or Apprentice.
The chain also announced a new perk for customers today. Chipotle is scrapping delivery fees for all Canadian customers through August 29 when you order through the restaurant’s app or website.
Another U.S.-based chain is planning its expansion across Canada as well. Chick-fil-A just opened up its third Ontario restaurant to crowds of eager customers and protestors, with plans to open up two more in Toronto. Better watch out, Chick-fil-A — Chipotle might have just won us over.
