Labor shortage in Canada, even Santa is missing

A few weeks before the annual holiday, Jeff Kilroy of the Just B Glass Agency is tearing his hair out: he only hired 24 Santa Clauses when he needed ten times as much. “I had to say no to 200 events and deny them every day,” he laments.

For his part, Eric Icarus has tried everything: invite friends and regular customers to fill in the gaps in the service table of his Mexican restaurant Corazon de Mies in Ottawa. On the front of its store, in front of several businesses in the Canadian capital or Montreal, is a poster proudly: “Here we hire”.
