Canadian Franchise

The Road to Recovery Starts Now!

On May 21st B.C. Residents can Attend the First-Ever

Virtual Franchise Canada Show

With B.C. expected to be one of the first provinces to re-open from the COVID-19 lockdown, the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) is excited to welcome B.C. entrepreneurs to their upcoming Franchise Canada Show from the comfort of their homes or offices.

“For those looking to be their own boss and take control of their financial future, franchising provides the opportunity to own a business backed by proven business models and the support of a community of innovative thinkers,” says Sherry McNeil, Canadian Franchise Association President and CEO.

“As self-employment related search terms have sky-rocketed to over 730 per cent recently, there is no better time to consider the exciting opportunities that franchising affords those looking to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves.”

The show aims to empower Canadians, by helping them discover the rewarding and diverse franchise opportunities available to them in B.C. The full-day virtual event will include a live stream of educational talks and insightful expert guidance including seminars and panels led by legal, financial and franchise experts. As well, the opportunity to connect one-on-one with some of the biggest names in Canadian franchising including established franchise brands like Platinum Sponsors KFC, Mary Brown’s Chicken & Taters, and McDonalds, as well as emerging success stories like EverLine Coatings and B.C.-based GetintheLoop.

For those serious about business ownership, the Virtual Franchise Canada show is the best place to start.
