World Franchise Network welcomes the Canadian Franchise Association

The addition of the CFA to the growing World Franchise Network brings the number of WFN member organizations across the globe to 14

The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) is the latest franchise organization to partner with Global Franchise’s World Franchise Network. This will be the first international strategic partnership that exists between the CFA and an organization outside of North America.

The World Franchise Network was created by Global Franchise in 2020 with the mission to bring together franchise associations and trade bodies under one roof to encourage and foster greater connectivity between franchising nations.

“We set up the World Franchise Network to build bridges between the world’s leading franchise authorities,” says Richard Davies QFP, advertising director for the DC Thomson franchise portfolio. “Canada is an exceptionally vibrant franchise market and the partnership with the CFA gives members opportunities to look beyond their borders for growth and collaboration.

“We’re excited to welcome CFA to the network and help give this leading authority – and its members – the opportunity to be part of the worldwide franchise conversation.”

Canada is one of the leading franchise markets worldwide, contributing over $120bn each year to the Canadian economy. The addition of the CFA to the growing World Franchise Network brings the number of WFN member organizations across the globe to 14.

The CFA is a national, not-for-profit association of more than 700 corporate members representing over 40,000 franchise business owners. Its main goal is to help everyday Canadians realize the dream of building their own business through franchising.

“The CFA is excited to join forces with the World Franchise Network and connect internationally with the franchise world,” says Sherry McNeil, president and chief executive officer of the CFA. “With Canada being a major player in the franchise industry one of the most franchise-friendly countries in the world, we aim to serve as a gateway for internationally-minded entrepreneurs so they can expand and benefit from Canada’s fast-growing franchise market.”

The strategic partnership between the CFA and the World Franchise Network will further the CFA’s mission of ‘Growing Together’ with the organization, working closely to share crucial intel and insights, keeping CFA members informed on up-to-date industry stats, regulatory updates, and doing more to strengthen the franchise community internationally.
