CNLA, in partnership with the Canadian Agricultural HR Council, a national, non-profit organization, are working together to address human resource issues facing agricultural businesses across Canada. 
Field horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is a native perennial weed that is found in most regions of Canada.  It is increasingly becoming problematic in nurseries across Canada and is particularly prevalent in nursery production in Coastal areas of BC. 


For more information on the above issues, please contact Rita Weerdenburg - Growers' Issues Manager at

Links to the recordings and presentations of this year's popular Growers Canada Winter Webinar Series are now available.
Growers Canada is focused on the issues that affect nursery growers on a national level.
The Canadian Standards for Nursery Stock is a set of minimum professional standards for the nursery industry. This publication is used daily by: students; educators; municipalities; garden centres; nurseries; landscape contractors; landscape designers; and landscape architects.
As is the case for all agricultural and horticultural commodities, Canada's wholesale nursery growers are particularly vulnerable to CFIA regulations, as Agency seeks to control the spread of harmful pests as mandated by Canada's Plant Health Act.  CNLA's mandate is not to provide pest control but rather to mitigate the implacations of CFIA regulations through improved industry-government communications.  Click here to view a list of some of the more recent plant health issues of concern to the sector; links to relevant CFIA information are provided.
The wholesale nursery sector is eligible to participate in a number of financial and business risk management programs made available to all agricultural producers by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC).  
The CNLA’s IPM and Minor Use Coordinator works with industry and various Federal and Provincial agencies to facilitate the registration of pest control products and promote the concepts of integrated pest management and pesticide risk reduction. 
The Grower of the Year Award program, open to all growers across Canada, is modeled after the international grower of the year award run by the International Association of Horticultural Producers 

With funding support from AAFC through their AgriMarketing program, beginning in 2009, CNLA has taken some important first steps in helping its grower members to access off-continent markets.  

The Canadian Nursery Landscape Association is involved in rose research, breeding and promotion.  Our new roses include Campfire and the Never Alone Rose.
