The Annotated Ontario Franchise Disclosure Act and The Annotated Alberta Franchises Act by Peter Macrae Dillon: "a must-read" for franchisors, franchisees and their advisors.
Canada Law Book and Peter Macrae Dillon present the Annotated Ontario Franchise Disclosure Act and the Annotated Alberta Franchise Disclosure Act – two portable volumes containing the legislation, caselaw and commentary you need. With franchising in Canada representing over 90 billion dollars a year in sales, these handy references are a must have for franchisors, franchisees and their advisors.
In July 2006 PEI joined Ontario and Alberta as the third franchise-regulated jurisdiction in Canada . PEI's disclosure requirement will become effective on January 1, 2007. As of that date, PEI, Ontario and Alberta franchisors must comply with all aspects of these laws, including the good faith and fair dealing provisions, the right of association provisions, and the all-important disclosure requirements. Experience with the laws, including judicial consideration, is only now starting to evolve.
"The Annotated Acts will prove to be invaluable to the legal and business community....No other single source explains the current legislation and decisions of the courts interpreting and applying that legislation....The quality of these books is representative of the author Peter Macrae Dillon who is a highly respected lawyer specializing in the area of franchising."
President, Canadian Franchise Association.
Franchising doesn't have to be a risky business. A healthy relationship between franchisee and franchisor requires full appreciation of the differences between "good faith" and "fair dealing". Dillon offers an in-depth discussion on the good faith versus fair dealing debate and includes quite possibly the best compilation of sample wording for disclosure documents available in Canada . Also included:
Peter Dillon is a Senior Partner of and heads the Franchise, Licensing & Distribution Group at Siskinds LLP. He is a recognized expert on franchise law in Canada . He is the only Canadian member of the Franchise Advisory Board of the North American Securities Administrators Association, and served as Canadian Governmental Expert to the International Organization for the Unification of Private International Law (UNIDROIT) in Rome.
