Advancing & Supporting the Franchise Community Since 1967
The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) 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.
There’s no question that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Canadian businesses, and those in the food industry are certainly no exception. Food franchises, however, remain a stalwart of the franchise business model, making up the largest category in franchising. As the Canadian economy starts on the path to recovery, food franchising has lots to offer prospective franchisees who want to make their business dreams become reality.

The CFA continues to be instrumental in helping Canadian businesses such as ours grow. As members, we undoubtedly owe it an enormous debt of gratitude, and on behalf of McDonald’s, I thank you for your tireless work over the years.
Apart from the credibility being a member affords a franchise, I am so appreciative of the many learning opportunities that have been offered to myself and my peers in the industry and the strong leadership that has kept the CFA relevant and current.
All of our franchisees were excited to hear we’re part of the CFA. It’s good to be part of a reputable organization and to know that they feel the same way about us. CFA gives us credibility and is good for guidance along the way for both myself and my franchisees.
