Description of franchise system

We at the Canadian Tire Corporation are Canada’s most-shopped general merchandise retailer.

We currently operate 482 stores across Canada. Our concept is to offer a unique mix of products and services through the categories automotive, sports, leisure and home products. 

Canadian Tire’s future starts with a clear purpose: We exist to create customers for life and shareholder value.

We coordinate and share in the cost of national promotions and advertising for the retail network. Plus, our franchisees engage in local promotions, subject to Canadian Tire standards and pricing requirements.

The Canadian Tire Corporation is one of Canada’s most-trusted retailers. A key reason for our success is the business knowledge, commitment and leadership skills of our franchisees.

This is why we're always looking for great people to join our network!

Franchise concept

Because your success is our success, we want to be sure that as a new franchisee, you'll be able to reach your full potential. This is the way we both succeed.
Our franchise opportunity offers you the right combination of independence and teamwork. A solid ground to start from.

To get you ready for your business, our Retail Leadership Development Program offers you an extensive six-month training program. The program includes four hands-on store placements and eight weeks of seminars and labs, customized to meet the individual learning needs of our new franchisees.

Once your training is successfully completed, you will be placed in your first store, for a minimum of two years. Your first store will be selected by us to make sure you get an easy start.

Therefore you must be fully mobile and prepared to move anywhere within for your first store. After your first two years, you are free to accept or decline the offers we will make you.  You can then remain in your current store if and until you accept another location.

So, what will be your daily routine as a Canadian Tire franchisee? You'll do the management of your store operations, systems and procedures . Selection, development and leadership of your own team of employees will also be an important part of your work. And of course you need to do the administration of your store finances.

We will support your business with ongoing marketing and merchandising support. And of course, good advice from our family of franchisees is always just a phone call away.

Franchise partner profile

There are a number of characteristics all of our successful franchisees share. So, our selection process was designed to identify these qualities.

But, first of all, don't worry. While a degree of business and financial acumen is of course necessary, specific retail experience is not essential. Self-motivation is what we are looking for.

Most importantly, you need to be a well-rounded individual who has a positive attitude for success and the passion and dedication necessary to excel.
If you are ready to commit, be proactive, deliver results, and continue learning and growing, you are the perfect candidate for us.
