Franchise Awareness Day

Organized by the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA), Franchise Awareness Day is a series of regional events that takes place in major cities across Canada.

On Franchise Awareness Day, CFA organizes in-person meetings between senior executives at CFA-member franchise systems and their local politicians. Meetings are then followed by an evening cocktail reception, where politicians and their staff can network with franchise business leaders.

The goal of Franchise Awareness Day is to build bridges between franchise leaders and government to raise awareness about the importance of franchising in Canada.

There are currently no Franchise Awareness Day events scheduled, however, CFA is happy to connect our members with politicians throughout the year. If you’re a politician who would like to meet with a CFA-member franchisor to learn more about their business, click here. If you’re a CFA member franchisor or franchisee who is interested in getting involved in CFA advocacy, click here, or contact Samantha Sheppard, Specialist, Government Relations, at ssheppard@cfa.ca / 416-695-2896 ext. 230.
