The Canadian Franchise Association’s (CFA) revamped Franchise Canada Show returned to Montreal September 15 & 16 with a new look and even more opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs! Canada’s ultimate franchise exhibition connected Canadians eager to get on the fast-track to business ownership with some of the country’s most beloved and iconic franchise brands and introduced them to new and emerging systems disrupting the industry with their unique business models!

Co-produced with the Quebec Franchise Council (CQF), Franchise Canada Show exhibitors ranged in industry, size and investment level, making it easier than ever before for attendees to find the perfect franchise match. Canada’s most well-known brands including Tim Hortons, Boston Pizza, BeaverTails and Pacini were on the exhibitor floor, while up-and-coming systems made their mark on attendees. Trade Secrets, CRUNCH Fitness, and Ramen Misoya let Montreal entrepreneurs know why investing with them was an exciting opportunity.

Show attendees also participated in our informative seminar series held both days of the show. Led by industry experts from Imagine Franchise, RBC, and more, these seminars covered pertinent franchise topics that matter most to future small business owners including, How to Buy the Right Franchise For You, Purchasing a Franchise – 10 Tips, and Building your #Someday Franchise Plan.

And for the first time ever in Montreal, successful franchisees from Quebec shared their franchise stories at our Franchisee Centre Stage. Franchisees from Kumon Math and Reading Centres and Oxford Learning Centres discussed their journey to small business ownership, provided insider tips on how to invest with success, and offered attendees an exciting new perspective on what it’s like to promote yourself to boss!
