Canadian Franchise Association


Your CFA membership can help you build your profile in the franchise industry and connect you with potential clients – but only if you know how to take advantage of your member benefits.

Find out how to get the most out of your CFA membership by signing up for our new Supplier Peer-to-Peer Program!

Through this free program, we’ll connect you with an established CFA-member supplier who can help you navigate the many benefits of CFA membership and show you the ropes.

If you’re looking to establish yourself as a premier solutions provider to the franchise industry, this is a free and easy way to expand your network and learn from a fellow CFA member.

How It Works

  • Partnerships will be based on participants’ regions, industries, self-identified challenges and areas of expertise.
  • You will not be paired with a competitor. Once the CFA has identified a suitable match, we will introduce you to your partner via e-mail.
  • The Peer-to-Peer Program is for a one year term. Peers will provide 6-12 hours of guidance via telephone, email, or in person within a 12-month period.
  • You and your partner will jointly determine scheduling, content, and all other aspects of the partnership.


  • Any CFA member supplier can sign up to receive guidance through the Peer-to-Peer Program.
  • We will attempt to pair each Peer with a Peer Guide from his/her own region, if available, based on desired topics provided in the application form.
  • Each supplier can apply for one Peer-to-Peer partnership per 12 month period.
  • Peer Guides are assigned on a first come first serve basis. There is no guarantee that a Peer Guide will be available.
