The Canadian judiciary is rapidly creating a franchisee-sensitive justice environment.
In 1998, we published a mission statement for the first Canadian national franchisee association: Canadian Alliance of Franchise Operators, CAFO. A place where leaders for each franchise system could be developed (an association of associations).
It was going to:
improve the equity within the franchise industry, be recognized as the definitive franchisee voice in Canada, and promote responsible and enforceable government regulations.
It would be done through education, a Franchise Industry Registry, advocacy, research, legislation, membership services and the Canadian Centre for Franchise Excellence.
Ted Dixon at the INFO Franchise Newsletter published our objectives and WikidFranchise has an archived copy here.
