I was pleased to meet with representatives from the Canadian Franchise Association during their advocacy day at Queen’s Park today and discuss the importance of the franchise industry and small businesses in Simcoe-Grey.
The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) website states the organization helps everyday Canadians realize the dream of building their own business through the power of franchising. The CFA advocates on issues that impact this dream on behalf of more than 700 corporate members and over 40,000 franchisees from many of Canada’s best-known and emerging franchise brands. Beyond its role as the voice of the franchise industry, the CFA strengthens and develops franchising by delivering best-practice education and creating rewarding connections between Canadians and Canadian franchise opportunities. Canadian franchises contribute over $100 billion per year to the Canadian economy and create jobs for more than 1.9 million Canadians. The CFA produces Franchise Canada, the Franchise Canada Shows, and LookforaFranchise.ca
