We brought you a news alert a few months ago regarding British
Columbia Law Institute's project on bringing forth
recommendations for a Franchise Act for British Columbia. The
British Columbia Law Institute (BCLI) published a consultation
paper with tentative recommendations back in March 2013 and asked
franchisors, franchisees, business and consumer organizations and
the general public to give the BCLI input about franchise
regulation in B.C. The consultation phase of the project ended on
September 30, 2013. The BCLI is currently in the process of

B.C. legislature. We will keep you updated on the status of the

Provinces that have enacted franchise legislation are: Alberta,
Ontario, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and most recently,
Manitoba. If British Columbia enacts a Franchise Act, it will
be the sixth province in Canada to do so.
