How long does it take to develop a Microtel in Canada?

Once a favourable market has been identified, the first step is to gain control/ownership of the specific site. Site acquisition, development and building permits, and market studies can be completed simultaneously and can take anywhere from 6 to 12 months. After the ground is broken, it typically takes 12 to 15 months to build and open a Microtel (18 to 27 months total).
