1,000 Refugees To Be Employed By Starbucks Canada

In the next five-year, at least 1,000 refugees would be employed by Starbucks Canada. In an article, the president of Starbucks Canada, Rossan Williams said; “Given the critical role Canada plays in welcoming refugees, we are resolute in our commitment to provide opportunities for employment so that these newcomers can successfully integrate and create a better future for themselves and their families.”


The announcement came in light of a statement made by the CEO of Starbucks Howard Schultz in January, saying that 10,000 refugees would be employed globally in the next five years to come. The employment process will start in most of the cities where current newcomers in Canada are residing in, the likes of Calgary, the Greater Toronto Area, Edmonton, Ottawa, Greater Vancouver and Montreal are going to be the main focus.


The company would have to face some repercussions as to the announcement made by Schultz in January, a boycott of the coffee chain was suggested by supporters of Donald Trump, a decline in sentiment towards Starbucks was reported by a company that keeps a record of the attitude of consumers.
