The 2020 Canadian Franchise Association National Convention will take place near our Montreal offices. Nethris will of course take part in this event! Our team will be present with a kiosk to pass on our know-how in human capital management to entrepreneurs and offer concrete solutions to the challenges they face on a daily basis. The agenda of the convention includes expert conferences, round-table discussions, networking activities and a great closing celebration.
Nethris has been a member of the Canadian Franchise Association since 2010. We believe in the mission of this organization, which is to protect the interests of franchisors and franchisees and to contribute to the growth of the industry. The group also broadcasts a podcast for business owners, on which we can listen to researchers, analysts and entrepreneurs share their vision of the Canadian market.
The Canadian economy largely depend on franchises. Throughout the country, there are 1,300 commercial banners and 76,000 franchisors, most of them SMEs working in the retail industry, the food industry, lodging and housing, and health services. They account for 20% of all consumer expenditures and contribute 96 billions of dollars to the Canadian gross national product.
