McDonald's® Canada Engages Deloitte to Conduct Independent Audit 
Independent Third Party to Audit all Restaurants Using Temporary Foreign 
Worker Program 
TORONTO, May 28, 2014 /CNW/ - McDonald's Restaurants of Canada Limited today 
announced it has retained Deloitte, a global leading professional services 
firm, as an independent third-party to conduct a compliance audit of its 
corporate and franchised restaurants' use of the Temporary Foreign Worker 
Program (the "Program"). 
"Engaging a trusted third-party firm like Deloitte to conduct this review 
reaffirms our commitment to doing the right thing and ensuring every 
restaurant using the Program is consistently meeting Program requirements. If 
any discrepancies are uncovered through the audit process, we will act swiftly 
and effectively to continue to make things right," said Len Jillard, Chief 
People Officer, McDonald's Canada. 
McDonald's Canada announced its commitment to conduct a third party review of 
the Program when it ordered a voluntary freeze of the Program. 
Deloitte will work with McDonald's and its franchisees to conduct a compliance 
audit, mirroring as closely as possible a Service Canada audit, in every 
restaurant employing temporary foreign workers. This will result in the 
auditing of more than 200 McDonald's restaurants in Canada. Deloitte, 
leveraging their team of advanced analytics and regulatory compliance 
specialists, will be performing the compliance audits with the expectation of 
completing them as quickly as possible.
