Franchising Through Extraordinary Times: When Necessity Fuels Innovation

The 2020 CFA Franchise Law Day will be held as a virtual event on September 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EST. With plenaries, workshops and sessions hosted by Canada’s foremost franchise lawyers, this conference is designed to help busy franchisors keep up to date with the latest franchise-related legislative developments. You’ll explore important lessons learned by leading case laws and the practical measures that can be taken to protect your business and minimize legal risk.

This year’s Law Day theme is “Franchising Through Extraordinary Times: When Necessity Fuels Innovation” and will delve into current legal issues that are shaping the future of franchising brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Discover practical solutions to current and emerging legal and business issues in franchising, including the impact on disclosure requirements, the role of innovation, the impact on supply chains, leasing and other business operations, the increased need for health and safety regulation and practices and the impact of massive changes to consumer and market behaviour that are challenging established principles, behaviours and industry practices.

What Attendees are Saying...

Informative and well organized! A must to attend. Franchising is legal and you can’t miss this! This was my first time attending and it was fantastic! The content was relevant, current and very educational. The roundtables were my favorite part of the day. I look forward to attending again!

This was my first year in the CFA and my first CFA Franchise Law Day that I attended. It will most definitely NOT be my last. The amount of information presented by the various legal minds – you could not possibly buy that kind of knowledge anywhere and yet here it is under one roof in an easy to understand comprehensive forum.

CFA Franchise Law Day provides up to date and informative discussions on practical legal issues regularly facing franchisors and franchisees, as well as advice on best practices in areas constantly undergoing change. Anyone who is involved in the administration of franchise legal affairs should not miss this program.
