The Franchise Canada Show Vancouver, the largest such exhibition in Canada, is being held November 12-13, 2022, at the Vancouver Convention Centre, organized by the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) and partially sponsored by major franchise companies.

According to the CFA, franchising is exhibiting strength as the 12th largest contributor to the Canadian economy.

“Total franchise-related employment in Canada is expected to grow by 2.1 per cent to 1.85 million jobs by 2023. In British Columbia, the number of franchise establishments is expected to increase by 206 to a total of 10,683 net establishments by the end of 2023, the second-highest growth among Canadian provinces, following Ontario,” according to Sherry McNeil, the CFA’s president & CEO.

She noted the Franchise Show allows would-be franchisees to meet with representatives from top franchise brands and learn from successful local franchise owners and other experts in franchising.

“This is the largest franchise-only exhibition in Canada, where you can explore the world of franchising as an opportunity to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself,” McNeil added.

Entry is free for those who pre-register.

Topics covered at this year’s show include how to select a franchise, franchise financing and franchise legal issues.
