When the founders of the Canadian Franchise Association came together in 1967 to create an organization committed to the growth, enhancement, promotion, and development of franchising in Canada their dreams were big and their task was large.

Now in 2017, as the CFA celebrates its 50th anniversary, their hard work has paid off! With over 600 corporate members, CFA has become the recognized voice for franchising and the only national trade association representing the industry in the country.

As the founding members had always intended, CFA is committed to educating Canadians about franchising and specific franchise opportunities.

One of the most effective ways the CFA does this is through The Franchise Show!

Beginning in 1996 and organized entirely by the CFA, The Franchise Show is Canada’s largest franchise-only exhibition where franchisors, franchisees and entrepreneurs seeking to join the industry come together to meet and network.

Held on an annual basis in cities across Canada, including Montreal, Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver, The Franchise Show offers attendees multiple resources to help meet their business needs and learn more about franchising!

Throughout the two-day event attendees will be able to connect with representatives from some of Canada’s biggest franchise brands and participate in free educational seminars held by experts in the industry that range in topics from what a franchise is, how they work, and tips on how to invest in one. Additionally, participants can meet one-on-one with established franchising professionals via The Franchise Experts Roundtables to ask their pertinent franchising questions!

As the CFA celebrates its founders, members, and inquisitive franchising Canadians throughout 2017, we want you to visit us at The Franchise Show! Stop by the CFA resource booth to get your hands on our franchising Starter Kit, FranchiseCanada magazine and FranchiseCanada Directory 2017!
