Ontario Legislature Returns
BC Budget
Newfoundland Premier Steps Down
Franchise Rescission Law

Ontario Legislature returns today

Today, the Ontario legislature reconvenes following the winter break. Here’s the Globe and Mail’s take on the upcoming session.


B.C. NDP government set to unveil 3rd straight balanced budget under ‘challenging’ circumstances 

Finance Minister Carole James is expected to introduce a balanced budget on Tuesday but it won’t have a lot of new spending. This is expected to be the NDP government’s third straight balanced budget. But James said keeping the province’s books in the black was more “challenging” than the last two years.

The CFA will review the budget after it is tabled and update members as appropriate on how the budget may impact franchised businesses operating in BC.


Dwight Ball stepping down as Newfoundland and Labrador Premier 

Dwight Ball is stepping down as premier of Newfoundland and Labrador after five years leading the province. He made the announcement in a pre-recorded video statement sent to media late Monday afternoon.

Ball’s government has been engulfed in a number of scandals and waning caucus support.


Has the Law of Franchise Rescission Changed since Raibex? An Ontario Court Provides a Partial Answer 

The recent decision in 2483038 Ontario Inc. v. 2082100 Ontario Inc., confirms a narrow point of franchise law, namely that an unsigned certificate in a Franchise Disclosure Document continues to constitute a “fatal flaw”, despite the Ontario Court of Appeal’s decision in Raibex Canada Ltd. v. ASWR Franchising Corp. The decision also clarifies the liability of “franchisor’s associates”.
