Although Canada provides considerable commercial opportunity for expansion-minded international franchises, Canada also presents its own set of challenges, from both a business and legal perspective.

One of the most significant distinctions is Canada's increasingly prevalent franchise disclosure obligation, which requires franchisors to provide all prospective franchisees with prescribed franchise information as to the franchisor and the franchised business system. This is legally mandated in many Canadian provinces, with the dual requirements of providing full disclosure as required by law, yet not providing such information or assurances that could result in the franchisee having a legal claim against the parent company should their franchise not realize the profitability that had been projected.

Provincial franchise laws and regulations, together with other business laws and regulations, place further demands on international franchisors in their efforts to conquer the Canadian market. When combined with the particularities of the Canadian consumer market and Canadian cultural traits, an internationally-established franchisor will have distinct challenges to overcome when seeking to effectively conquer the Canadian franchise market.

At the Canadian law firm of Neufeld Legal PC, we are committed to working with international franchisors as they strive to successfully enter Canada and make their franchise business profitable in Canada to the same degree that it has succeeded elsewhere in the world. Taking your successful franchise brand into Canada needs to be effectively managed, given that your business’ investment and reputation could be hurt by a faulty rollout. As such, your corporate team should be working with knowledgeable legal advisors to limit legal and regulatory issues, while maximizing the prospects of your Canadian franchisees being profitable and increasing your international brand.

For knowledgeable and experienced legal representation in the launching of Canadian franchises, contact the franchisor's law firm of Neufeld Legal P.C. via email at; by telephone at (001) 416-887-9702
