About the CFA Military Veterans Program
In recognition of Canada’s veterans and their brave service to our country, the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) is pleased to work with the Department of National Defence in delivering the CFA Military Veterans Program, an initiative to help honourably released Canadian Armed Forces personnel who want to transition to work outside the Forces through the opportunities in franchising.
Success in the military is often achieved through the same qualities that translate to success in franchising – discipline, leadership, commitment, and an ability to work with a standard operating procedure. Franchising can provide meaningful career opportunities for veterans and enable veterans to go into business for themselves but not by themselves.
Participating CFA member franchise brands are proud to offer military veterans special incentives unavailable to other franchisees, making it easier for honorably discharged veterans to meet the requirements of franchise investment. (Download the CFA Military Veterans Program brochure to learn more.)
The CFA Military Veterans Program provides:
- Franchise Opportunities: Exclusive access to premier franchise ownership opportunities offering special offers and incentives to honorably discharged Canadian Forces members who want to transition to work outside the Forces;
- Franchise Employment: Access to employment opportunities at both corporate head offices of franchise systems and within franchise locations themselves
- Resource Articles: Relevant and essential resource articles to help Canadian Forces personnel prepare for franchise success
