CFA Brings #FranchiseAwareness to Parliament Hill : 2018 CFA National Convention

On April 24th, the Canadian Franchise Association held Franchise Awareness Day on Parliament Hill: a definitive feature of the 2018 CFA National Convention and vital next step in raising awareness about Canada’s $96 billion franchising industry.

With the CFA’s first-ever Economic Contribution of the Canadian Franchise Industry Report in hand, more than 75 leading franchisors and franchisees connected with Canada’s politicians to highlight the significance of the franchising industry and the indelible impact it’s made on Canada’s economy.

From Caucus meetings to one-on-one meetings to our cocktail reception, it was a day marked by connection, education, and empowerment. Together, participating franchise members were able to express the ongoing role franchising has played in their lives and their communities.

Thank you to all CFA members who participated and made the day a success! Scroll down to see some photos from the day.
