Foodora, the app based delivery company, has announced that it will permanently close in Canada. Foodora will cease operations at midnight on May 11.

Foodora Inc. is a subsidiary of Delivery Hero SE which is based out of Berlin. An e-mail was sent to delivery drivers on April 27 informing them of their departure from the food delivery market in Canada.

Foodora Closing E-mail

Shortly after, Foodora issued a press release on their website stating that they are closing due to increased competition in the market and an inability to turn a sustainable level of profit.

Foodora has filed a Notice of Intention to Make a Proposal under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, which effectively allows them to restructure their affairs to avoid going bankrupt.

Foodora currently operates in the following Canadian cities:

  • Toronto
  • Montreal
  • Vancouver
  • Calgary
  • Edmonton
  • Ottawa
  • Laval
  • Mississauga
  • Quebec City

The company was competing for business with other food delivery apps like Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes and Door Dash.
