Ontario’s Proposal For Franchise Legislation

Edward N. Levitt (Levitt, Beber, Tel: (416) 865-6700, Fax: (416) 865-6720), speaking about Ontario’s proposed franchise act (SEE INFO Vol. 23, No. 1, Pg.7) at last month’s Canadian Franchise Association Convention noted:

What happens next? It is expected that there will be one more sitting of the Provincial Parliament before an election is called, during which a number of pending government bills would be passed. Bill 93 could be among them. However, it is understood that the Opposition Critics oppose the Bill as not going far enough for franchisees. Without their support, the Bill will not proceed now, because of the time limitations in the Legislature. For these critics, the choice is between cooperating and getting some real advances for franchisees now or taking responsibility for killing the Bill and maintaining the status quo. Nonetheless, a re-elected Conservative Government would be expected, given all the work on this legislation to date, to finish the task after the election.
