Getting started? According to the Canadian Franchise Association franchised businesses account for 40 percent of all retail sales in the country. With currently over 78,000 franchise units across Canada, franchising directly employs over 1,000,000 people. Franchising has been reported to account for one out of every five consumer dollars spent in the country in good and services, and franchising accounts for 10 percent of Canada’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
