Wanted: new franchise laws

Charise Clark provides an accurate view when she links the 5,000 new lawsuits per year with out-of-control franchisors. Let’s hope the Ontario government finally brings in protective laws so 40,000 entrepreneurs can focus on what they do best: serving their customers, not their lawyers.

Thank you for publishing “The new face of franchising” (Dec/Jan. 2000) about Canada’s controversial franchise industry. Charise Clark provides an accurate view when she links the 5,000 new lawsuits per year with out-of-control franchisors.

Let’s hope the Ontario government finally brings in protective laws so 40,000 entrepreneurs can focus on what they do best: serving their customers, not their lawyers.

Editor’s note: In December Ontario introduced its Franchising Disclosure Act. If passed, the bill will require franchisors to provide potential franchisees with more information including business background and litigation history.
