Links to Job Opportunities 

McDonald's and its independent franchisees are equal opportunity employers committed to diverse workforces. Behind our People Vision stands our absolute commitment to respect and recognize our people, to support their personal growth and education, to instill leadership and dedication, and to provide them with the best working environment possible. We continue to believe in and reaffirm our long-standing policy of providing fair and equal opportunities for all employees and prospective employees. If you are selected as part of the selection process and you require an accommodation, we shall provide or arrange for the provision of a suitable accommodation in a manner that takes into account your needs due to disability.

Online Services may provide links to job opportunities posted by corporately owned or franchised restaurants on third party sites. These opportunities are specific to a particular restaurant and employer. This means that the restaurant that posted the opportunity is alone responsible for setting the job requirements, all hiring decisions, and all other employment related matters. McDonald’s and its parent company do not control whether you receive an interview or are hired at a franchised restaurant.  McDonald's and its parent company also do not control franchisees’ employment policies and practices. Neither McDonald’s nor its parent company employs independent franchisees. If you are hired by a franchised restaurant, only that franchisee, and not McDonald’s or its parent company, is your employer.

Sending Orders to Restaurants

We may offer our guests a convenient way to place orders for our products from wherever they have internet access, in areas and on technology platforms where this service is available. This section applies to orders you place using the Online Services.

Independent businesses own and operate many restaurants: While McDonald’s operates and controls the Online Services, we are not responsible for the operation of most restaurants. Most restaurants are instead owned and operated by independent franchisees of McDonald’s. Each restaurant is solely and independently responsible for its legal and regulatory compliance, including for any issues relating to the supply of products to you. Not all restaurants may choose to make their products available via online ordering.

 

  • You purchase products directly from restaurants: When you place an order online, while McDonald’s provides the Application through which you place your order and through which your payment is collected, McDonald’s performs these services on behalf of the owner of the participating restaurant to which you submitted your order. The contract for supplying the products you requested at the agreed upon prices will be between you and the restaurant that accepts your order and fulfills it (either through pickup or delivery).

 

  • About the products in the Online Services:  All products are subject to availability at the restaurant where your order is placed. Some restaurants do not sell all products. Images of products and packaging on the Online Services are examples only and may not be identical to the product or packaging you receive from a restaurant. Differences may be due your device’s display of colours or factors such as the ingredients used, the supplier, the region of the country, and the season of the year. 

 

  • About online prices: Each restaurant independently determines its own prices and independently applies any taxes and fees. Certain offers and pricing may not be available for all orders at all locations. In the event you discover an error in the price of a product charged to you, please contact the McDonald’s Guest Contact Centre by calling 1-888-424-4622 seven days a week from 8:30am to 8:30pm ET  or visit Contact Us (mcdonalds.com/ca/en-ca/contact-us.html).

 

  • Registration & payment: Online ordering requires that you register for and activate an account through the Online Services and that you register a payment method (e.g. a credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay). You may need to enable location services on your device in order for ordering to function properly.  McDonald’s uses third-party providers to securely store your payment method and process your payments. When you register a payment method, McDonald’s, through a third-party payment processor, may process an authorization using your payment method to verify that it is valid. By registering your payment method, you represent and warrant that you are entitled to use the payment method you register.

 

  • Placing an order:  You can use the Online Services to create your order and send it to a participating restaurant that you select for pickup. Your payment card will not be charged until you check in at a restaurant. Orders must be collected in person from the restaurant. You can check-in at any participating restaurant, even if you selected a different restaurant when you built your order. If you check-in at a different participating restaurant than you originally selected, your updated order total at check-in may have resulted from changes in products, pricing, taxes or fees required by law, the unavailability of certain products, changes in price, or other reasons. Due to such updates, you will be prompted to check-in again. When you complete your check in, you authorize McDonald’s to charge your order total (including an updated total) to your chosen payment method.

 

  • Cancelling your order and refund requests: You have the ability to update or abandon your order at any time until you check in your order at a restaurant. However, once you complete your check in at a restaurant, you cannot cancel it. If you would like a refund for any reason, including if the products are unsatisfactory or other reasons, please contact the McDonald’s Guest Contact Centre by calling 1-888-424-4622 seven days a week from 8:30am to 8:30pm ET or visit Contact Us (mcdonalds.com/ca/en-ca/contact-us.html).

You may receive offers through the Online Services.  The following general terms apply to offers: (1) the offer may only be available through that particular Online Service and for the product shown, subject to availability, in participating restaurants only, and until the expiration date; (2) serving times apply (e.g., certain non-breakfast offers may not be available at breakfast serving times); (3) unless otherwise stated each offer expires on redemption; (4) unless otherwise stated, only one offer can be redeemed per transaction; (5) offers are not transferable; and (6) there is no cash alternative.

MyMcDonald’s Rewards (Canada)

Rewards Terms & Conditions

In certain geographical areas, McDonald’s is piloting and then launching its MyMcDonald’s Rewards Program (“MyMcDonald’s Rewards” or the “Program”) in Canada. If you are within those geographical areas, the Program may be available to you. By using the Online Services when the Program is displayed, you agree to participate in the Program as part of your use of the Online Services. These MyMcDonald’s Rewards Terms & Conditions (Canada) (the “Rewards Terms”) apply only if you participate in the Program. 

You understand and agree that you have already agreed to the Rewards Terms when you registered and logged into your App account. Although the Rewards Terms are intended to supplement and not to change the Online Services Terms, in the event of a conflict between the Rewards Terms and Online Services Terms that relates to the Program itself, the Rewards Terms will control. In the event of any other conflict between the Rewards Terms and the Online Services Terms, the Online Services Terms will control. All dollar amounts referred to in these Rewards Terms are in Canadian Dollars.

Eligibility and Enrollment

You are only eligible to participate in MyMcDonald’s Rewards if you meet the age requirements for the Online Services. In order to enroll in MyMcDonald’s Rewards, you must register and activate a McDonald's App account. Customers who registered an account prior to the launch of MyMcDonald’s Rewards can enroll in the Program by using the McDonald's App in the geographical area of the Program on or after the launch date of the Program. When you use the McDonald's App outside of the geographical area of the Program, neither the Program nor any points you accumulated in the Program will be available to you.  However, they remain available to you once you return to the geographical area of the Program. Once you enroll in the Program, you are not able to collect digital punches in the McDonald’s Mobile Rewards program or points in the MyMcDonald’s Rewards Program outside the geographical area of the Program.

When McDonald’s Mobile Rewards Expire. MyMcDonald’s Rewards is replacing the McDonald’s Mobile Rewards program. If you participated in McDonald’s Mobile Rewards program and have an existing McDonald’s Mobile Reward (“MMR”), then any existing MMRs must be redeemed on or before February 28, 2022.  All MMRs expire on February 28, 2022 when existing purchases towards MMR are converted to points. If you participated in the McDonald’s Mobile Rewards program and have made purchases as of November 16, 2021 as part of the McDonald’s Mobile Rewards program but have not made enough purchases to receive a MMR, then if you choose to enroll in MyMcDonald’s Rewards, your existing purchases qualifying towards a MMR will immediately be converted into MyMcDonald’s Rewards points (“points”). For each purchase (up to 6 qualifying purchases) under the McDonald’s Mobile Rewards program, 300 points will be deposited in your account. If you have opted in to receiving emails from McDonald’s, you will receive an email alerting you of the number of points added to your account. We will send the email to your email address that you used to create your account.

How to earn points. Once enrolled in the Program, when you identify your account at the time of purchase, you will earn 100 points for every CAD $1 dollar spent on qualifying purchases. You can identify your account at the time of purchase by any way that we recognize, such as: (a) making a purchase using the Order feature of the McDonald's App, (b) scanning a QR code at a register or kiosk, or (c) giving the code displayed in your account to the restaurant crew person who is taking your order. If you don’t properly identify your account before you complete your qualifying purchase, you cannot earn any points for that purchase. 

Qualifying purchases. A “qualifying purchase” means using the McDonald's App to purchase eligible products from a participating restaurant in a manner that properly identifies you as described above. Qualifying purchases where an active reward, mobile offer, or promotional offer is redeemed will accrue points, but you will only accrue points for dollars actually spent in the transaction. Further, unless otherwise stated, the following are not considered qualifying purchases and will not accrue points: (a) when redeeming points for free products; (b) taxes, bag, cup and bottle fees, and other surcharges or fees; (c) coupon booklets, donations or fundraising purchases (unless tied to a promotion); and (d) McDonald’s gift card purchases or loading money on a McDonald’s gift card (unless tied to a promotion), but when a McDonald’s gift card is used to make a qualifying purchase you will accrue points. 

Verifying your points balance. You can check your points balance in your account using the McDonald’s App. Points that you earn may not always immediately post to your account. You are responsible to ensure points from your qualifying purchases are correct. If you believe points from your qualifying purchase were incorrectly calculated, you must notify McDonald’s within six (6) months of the qualifying purchase by providing your receipt to McDonald’s Guest Contact Centre by calling 1-888-424-4622 seven days a week from 8:30am to 8:30pm ET or visit Contact Us (mcdonalds.com/ca/en-ca/contact-us.html). Except where prohibited by law, including in the Province of Québec, McDonald’s has the sole discretion to determine points in your account and McDonald’s has no liability for any delay or failure to correctly credit points to your account. 

Exchanging your points for rewards that you choose. You can exchange your points for rewards for free products on the Rewards Menu (each a “reward”), which you can then use at participating restaurants. You must use the McDonald’s App or other Online Services in order to exchange your points for rewards. If you have enough points for a reward, the reward will be unlocked in the Online Services and available for a points exchange. Chronologically, the first points you collect will be the first points unlocked for use. Potential rewards for which you do not have enough points may be displayed but locked. Once you select a reward and exchange your points for it, the number of points for that reward will be temporarily deducted from your account and the reward will be displayed in your account. The reward will temporarily remain in your account until you redeem it for a product, and if you do not, it will be converted back to points. When you redeem the reward for which you exchanged points, the points will be permanently deducted from your account. Unless otherwise stated, you cannot exchange points for more than one (1) reward at a time. When you redeem your reward for a product, you are obtaining that product directly from the participating restaurant, not from other Members of the McDonald’s System. McDonald’s and its parent company, franchisees, agents, representatives, and agencies as well as their officers, directors, and employees are together “Members of the McDonald’s System”.

Other ways to earn and redeem. From time to time, McDonald’s may offer new and different ways for you to earn and redeem points, including bonus campaigns or points accelerators. McDonald’s has the sole discretion to offer, change and terminate the different ways to earn and redeem points, including for example, the points associated with bonus campaigns and accelerators. Sometimes earning and redeeming points may be subject to additional terms disclosed at the time of the offer. 

Rewards Menu. McDonald’s publishes eligible rewards in the Online Services and identifies how many points are required for each reward. The Rewards Menu may have multiple reward levels and multiple rewards on each level, which can change from time to time. McDonald’s makes no promise of the continued availability of any reward, even if it is displayed to you in the Online Services. Rewards are available until supplies last at participating restaurants and may be modified, changed and discontinued at any time. Rewards have no cash value.

Point expiration. Points expire on the first (1st) day of the month after the sixth (6th) month from the date such points were earned, except where prohibited by law. Points will be maintained in your account until you exchange your points for a reward, or until they expire, whichever occurs first. If McDonald’s terminates the Program, any unused points in your account will expire and be void when the Program is terminated. Upon termination of your account for any reason (including, but not limited to, whether you choose to close your account or McDonald’s terminates your account for a violation of these Terms), all points that you have accumulated in MyMcDonald’s Rewards will immediately expire.

Your compliance with the Reward Terms. McDonald’s has the discretion to invalidate or void points from your account, or to suspend or terminate your account (both now and in the future), if McDonald’s believes you improperly obtained points, abused the Program or otherwise violated the Terms (including the Reward Terms). In that event, you forfeit any points you have accumulated (including properly obtained points) and you forfeit your right to earn points in the future. Except where prohibited by law, including in the Province of Québec, McDonald’s has the sole discretion to determine your compliance with these Terms. 

No rights in points. Points are not property and you have no vested right or interest in points. Points have no cash value. Points are not assignable or transferrable between accounts or otherwise, and points cannot be combined across accounts, regardless of who registered the account. 

Changes to MyMcDonald’s Rewards. MyMcDonald’s Rewards can change from time to time. McDonald’s reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel, change, modify or discontinue MyMcDonald’s Rewards, in whole or in part, including any terms, rules, features, benefits, rewards, conditions of participation, points accruing or accumulation ratio, the points redemption policy, the points expiration policy, or any other aspect of the Program at any time, with or without advance notice, even though changes may affect points and rewards already in your account. 

McDonald’s may make changes to any element of the Program to correct for typographical, printing or other errors and you waive any rights relating to same. Any changes will become effective immediately upon posting the revisions. At all times, you are solely responsible for remaining knowledgeable about and in compliance with these Reward Terms.   

Miscellaneous. All rewards offered via the Program are subject to availability. Some participating restaurants do not sell all products offered as rewards. Images of products and packaging of rewards are examples only and may not be identical to the product or packaging you receive from a participating restaurant.

Miscellaneous

Each of the terms and conditions in these Terms are severable and operate separately. If any of them are unlawful, void or unenforceable, then the remaining terms and conditions will remain in full force and effect.

If McDonald’s fails to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if McDonald’s does not enforce its rights against you, or delays in doing so, that will not mean that McDonald’s has waived its rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations.

McDonald’s may transfer its rights and obligations under these Terms to another organization or entity, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. You may only transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms to another person if McDonald’s agrees in writing.

 

App Updates/Upgrades

McDonald’s may from time-to-time issue updated or upgraded versions of the App and may (subject to your device settings) automatically electronically update or upgrade the version of the App that you are then currently using on your mobile device. You consent to receive updates or upgrades to the App automatically without providing further consent. The App (including any updates or upgrades) may: (i) cause your device to automatically communicate with our servers to deliver the functionality described in the App description or through new features as they are introduced, and to record usage metrics; (ii) affect preferences or data stored on your device; and (iii) collect personal information as set out in our Privacy Policy. McDonald’s will not be responsible if an update or upgrade affects how the App works on your device if this is caused by your own equipment or device not supporting the update or upgrade. You can withdraw consent at any time by uninstalling the App or by contacting us through the McDonald’s Guest Contact Centre by calling 1-888-424-4622 seven days a week from 8:30am to 8:30pm ET or visit Contact Us (mcdonalds.com/ca/en-ca/contact-us.html).
