In attendance were the CNLA Board of Directors, BCLNA members, representatives from Caterpillar Inc., DynaSCAPE Software, FCA Canada, HortProtect, Kubota, as well as other distinguished guests and sponsors.
Also in attendance, was MP Stephen Fuhr, who announced the contribution of $1.1 million to grow the domestic and international market for Canadian ornamental horticulture. MP Fuhr's announcement was well received by everyone in the room, as this significant investment in Canada's nursery and landscape sector will benefit the entire value chain, from the grower to the consumer. CNLA President, Rene Thiebaud, confirmed that the funding will be used in a variety of projects dedicated to increasing market exposure of Canadian ornamental horticulture products.
