Support Franchise Advocacy

Advocacy Banner

Recognizing Donors

The Canadian Franchise Association’s (CFA) mission is to help everyday Canadians realize the dream of building their own business through the power of franchising and, as part of that help, advocating for the franchise model is essential.

Part of what makes CFA’s advocacy work successful is the commitment that leaders like you have made to support our government relations program. It is voluntary donations from CFA members that helps fund our nationwide activities and gets the word out about the power and importance of franchising to everyday Canadians.

The momentum of our government and public policy work has been ever increasing as CFA has played a fundamental role in protecting and advancing the franchise industry in Canada. A key strategy of our work is providing essential education to government across Canada. From this exposure, CFA has been, and continues to be, building and developing relationships with key influencers at various levels of governments to help shape their perceptions of franchising. Channels of communication are opening up and the profile of the CFA is becoming more visible as a “force to be reckoned with” and as a valuable source of information and knowledge on an industry that is hugely impactful on the Canadian economy but has been vastly misunderstood.

Our advocacy work is not done. We continue the fight for franchising in several provinces on employment and labour law issues like joint-employer and minimum wage. We continue to build relationships in government that will lead to more engagement, consultation, and partnership opportunities for franchising and small business. We continue to be an ever-growing and powerful voice for franchising on behalf of our members.

But we will not be successful alone. Pledge your support to protect the franchise business model through a donation to CFA's Advocacy Fund. Volunteer your time in our franchise advocacy efforts as business owners, employers, and community leaders. Connect with us and learn how you can get involved in CFA advocacy. Contact David Black, Director, Government Relations & Public Relations at or call 1-800-665-4232 ext. 297.
