This webinar aims to demystify the business of franchising in the province of Québec. For instance, the absence of disclosure requirements makes franchising in Québec more cost-effective and easier than in other franchise-legislated provinces. The French language requirements touch on a variety of issues such as labeling, signage, instruction, operating manuals, websites and advertising. Those requirements can appear onerous but can be easily overcome. The program will also address other “need to know” issues such as consumer protection and the protection of personal information which are not dissimilar to that of other provinces.
- The Québec market is as good and viable as any other Canadian market; and the law, culture and use of the French language do not alter this reality;
- The language barrier can be easily overcome;
- The adjustments and costs associated with legal, cultural and linguistic differences in Québec are largely outweighed by the economic benefits of franchising in that province.
