With pending changes to labour legislation in Alberta, it’s critical for franchisors in the province to build bridges with government and help them understand the importance of franchising to Canada’s economy.
That’s why, on May 16, the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) held a Franchise Awareness Day at the Legislative Assembly of Alberta in Edmonton. The event brought together 17 CFA-member franchisors and franchisees and 40 Members of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta (MLAs), who connected through Caucus meetings, one-on-one meetings, and our reception.
Here are some photo highlights from the day. Thank you to all CFA members and MLAs who participated and made the day a great success!
