2024

Come celebrate Excellence in our industry at Delta Hotels by Marriott, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, on August 7 & 8, 2024


The National Awards of Landscape Excellence recognize Canadian companies that have actively raised professionalism in the landscape industry. Each province nominates members from the provincial Awards of Excellence competition that are then entered into the national awards. They may enter up to three entries per category for a total of fifteen entries per association for the following excellence awards: landscape design, landscape construction (commercial and residential), and landscape maintenance (commercial and residential).

The Green for Life Awards recognize the significant contributions made to the ornamental horticulture sector by an individual, corporation, or community. Submissions include projects within a community, region or municipality that have a specific benefit to the public through the development and/or maintenance of green spaces.

The CNLA President’s Award is given to members or staff who, in the opinion of the current Executive Committee of the CNLA Board of Directors, have demonstrated, beyond question, a sustained personal commitment that has contributed beneficially to the enhancement of the industry at a national or international level.

The CNLA National Awards of Landscape Excellence are sponsored by CATERPILLAR, JOHN DEERE, EQUINOX ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCTS, HORTPROTECT, FENCHURCH GENERAL INSURANCE COMPANY, STAPLES & LANDSCAPE TRADES MAGAZINE.
