The Canadian Franchise Market.

Canada has the second largest franchise market in the world. A sophisticated franchise industry with over 76,000 franchised units trading. Practically every sector of the economy is represented and every price point.

Each state has availability for every business format because alongside mature franchise brands there are always new entrants coming in to the market.

Lime has a “live list” of new franchises that are about to launched, if you’d like to receive that please fill in our contact form.

How to bring your UK franchise into Canada 

The first thing to know is that Canada is the second largest franchise market in the world. If you’re not in Canada then you really need to be. It’s a great stepping stone into the USA which is the worlds largest franchise market. So it makes sense to be in Canada.

So how do you break into the Canadian market?

The first thing to know is that your UK trademark doesn’t protect you in Canada. So to protect your trading style you will need to have that registered in Canada. We can sort that out for you.

The second thing to know is that whilst the UK is unregulated, Canada is not. What that means is that you have to create a document that is legally required for you to be a franchisor in Canada. That document is called a Franchise Disclosure Document.

The third part is legal again, and a decision needs to be taken as to which country the franchise agreement is enforced in. We can go through the options with you. Canada’s states each have slight differences which may require the standard agreement to be tweaked somewhat for each territory.
