McDonald’s Canada to resume accepting reusable travel mugs again in Vancouver later this month

January 7, 2022

VANCOUVER, Jan. 7, 2022 - McDonald’s Canada today announced that it will once again accept guests’ own reusable travel mugs later this month in Vancouver, B.C. Protecting the health and well-being of crew and guests has been top priority throughout the pandemic. With that in mind, the company has continued to assess the right time to reintroduce the ability for guests to bring their own reusable travel mugs for use with hot McCafé beverages at restaurants.

When service begins, guests in Vancouver will be the first in the country to once again have the option to bring their own reusable travel mugs to McDonald’s restaurants. Reusable travel mugs will be handled in accordance with McDonald’s operating procedures for the program. Reintroducing the reusable travel mug program nationally will be handled in a phased approach with updates on timing to follow.
