Franchise Systems Training and Networking

Tuesday, November 26 | 3:00 PM - 4:45 PM

ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Calgary

Are you confident that your franchise disclosure document (FDD) is as good as it can be?

Please join Peter Snell on Tuesday, November 26th for an in-depth training session designed for franchise systems who need to understand the key challenges and legal pitfalls when preparing FDDs and selling franchises.

Peter is a partner at the international law firm Gowling WLG and is the co-chair of its Franchise Practice Group, and Chair of the firm’s Retail, Restaurants, Hospitality and Leisure Sector. He was a special advisor to the Government of BC in drafting BC’s franchise legislation and is former General Counsel to the Canadian Franchise Association.

This one hour training session will take a “nuts and bolts” approach to understanding and using your FDD in Canada. Six provinces now have franchise laws and the courts are increasingly finding new disclosure requirements. Is your FDD fully compliant, and do you have a system in place to make sure you provide complete disclosure to all franchisee prospects, resales, and renewals? It is extremely important to know the ins and outs of your FDD to avoid the common traps and pitfalls that many franchise systems fall into.

We will explore best practices and discuss ways to minimize the chance of rescission claims by unhappy franchisees.

Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to network and mingle with your franchise colleagues.
