CFA Brings #FranchiseAwareness to British Columbia

On November 7, the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) held Franchise Awareness Day at the Legislative Assembly in Victoria. With the new government in BC having recently announced their intentions to update employment and labour laws, Franchise Awareness Day was a critical first step for the franchise sector to be heard in the province.

The event brought together 15 CFA-member franchisors and franchisees and over 50 Members of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia (MLAs), who connected through Caucus meetings, one-on-one meetings, and our cocktail party and reception.

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

Our next Franchise Awareness Day will be held on April 24, 2018 in Ottawa. Click here for more information and to register.
