Welcome to Franchise Law Day 2022!

Business owners today are faced with near constant turbulence, from market fluctuations to new technologies to global turmoil, all evolving at a rapid pace. Franchised systems and their counsel are finding themselves rising to innovate and adapt to these shifts and trends. We invite you to join us—live and in person!—Thursday, September 22 from 8:45 am to 4:30 pm at the Old Mill Inn and Spa in Toronto, for the 2022 CFA Law Day: Adapting and Growing in New Market Realities.

Following this year’s theme, Adapting and Growing in New Market Realities, expert speakers and panelists will provide updates on new legislation, market shifts, and legal developments occurring across the country that are impacting franchising. This year’s Law Day will also include practical sessions exploring franchise growth, expansion, and adaptation to the world’s new market realities.
Participants will attend keynote, concurrent, and roundtable sessions hosted by Canada’s foremost franchise lawyers and business leaders. This conference is designed to keep you and your colleagues up to date with the latest franchise-related legal and legislative developments.

The 2022 program will delve into a range of legal and business issues and insights on how franchised systems can best operate in the current climate. Topics include Quebec’s new language laws, legal and legislative updates, growing with technology, and an intro to the digital metaverse and its connection to franchising and IP protection..

We look forward to a wonderful program and hope you can join us!
