The franchisor compliance manual

Disclosure during the term of the agreement

Your disclosure obligations do not stop after you enter into, renew or extend a franchise agreement.

You will also have to disclose certain information during the life of the agreement. This information enables the franchisee to stay up-to-date on matters that are material to the franchise system or their franchised business.

The obligations set out in this chapter apply to a franchisor in its dealings with a prospective or existing franchisee. A master franchisor is not required to comply with these obligations in relation to a sub-franchisee unless the master franchisor is a party to the sub-franchise agreement.
