Developing and implementing Canadian franchise systems, both as domestic franchisors and the Canadian master franchisor for a global franchise operation.

Launching a franchise operation in Canada, whether originating within the country or from an existing global franchise system (as the Canadian master franchisor), requires that the Canadian franchise system is compliant with Canadian laws and regulations (including, but not limited to, provincial franchise laws that have been enacted in selected provinces).  Differences in national legal and regulatory systems as they relate to franchising can be very significant, with the penalties for non-compliance often being very costly [see more: Canadian franchising challenges], while the correct legal knowledge can prove highly profitable.

As such, it is important that when a franchisor is looking to launch a franchise system across Canada or in a particular province(s), they consult with knowledgeable legal counsel that are versed in the implementation and operation of Canadian franchise system. Franchising is heavily regulated in Canada, with significant complexities and requirements that need to be strictly conformed to, while the principal focus of the franchisor should be on the actual launch of the franchised business (from franchisee selection, franchise build out, financing, supplies, equipment acquisition, leasing, logistics, etc.). With the appropriate legal team, the lawyers complement your pursuit and implementation of a Canadian franchise system, providing that all important legal component.
