Canadian Flowers Week is an annual advocacy, education and awareness campaign that celebrates Canadian grown flowers. Throughout the week, we will engage the floral industry, the public, policymakers and the media, in a conversation about the origins of our flowers.
We believe that local flowers are just as important as local food. They bring seasonality into our lives, making us realize when the best time of year is for sweet peas, just like we know when it's the best time to eat tomatoes. The public is becoming more engaged, and is keen on finding out where, when and how their flowers are being grown.
Our goal, with the help of local flower communities across our country, is to build on that mindful momentum by forming bonds between farms, florists and consumers. Together, we can develop long lasting social impact which in turn will benefit local economics and bring Canadians the best quality flowers for years to come.
