Zor-2-Zor Mentees

Canadian Franchise Association Franchise Mentor Program


What Is a Mentee?
A mentee is someone seeking specific counsel on desired consultation topics from a volunteer leader or colleague who provides help, guidance and support. This type of relationship is usually a mutual agreement in which the mentee is guided by the mentor in order to advance in their professional career


Don’t go it alone when you don’t have to.

Eligibility Process

Mentee placements are open to CFA members entering their second consecutive year of membership or who have joined on the two-year introductory membership bundle. Mentees will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis determined by mentor availability. As all mentor roles are volunteer based, mentees may be placed on a waiting list until an appropriate mentor is available.

Each mentee will be paired with a mentor from their own region based on the mentee’s self-identified concerns and challenges, taking into consideration the mentor’s self-identified areas and industries of expertise. Mentees will not be paired with a mentor from a competing system. This is a limited program.

Each franchise system is restricted to one mentor-mentee consulting partnership per year. Mentees will be paired with a mentor for one year long term. Over the course of the year, the mentor will provide 12-15 hours of consulting/counsel via telephone and email. In-person meetings may be arranged at the discretion of the mentor.
