CNLA - Canadian Nursery Landscape Association

The Canadian Nursery and Landscape Association (CNLA) dates back to the 1922 formation of the Eastern Canada Nurserymen's Association, with members mainly comprised from Ontario and Quebec. Formerly the Canadian Nursery Trades Association, the Association was re-named in 1999 to better reflect the nature of its members. Today, the CNLA has an official constitution and is incorporated under the laws of The Canadian Corporations Act -- a reflection of their commitment to uphold the integrity of the landscape and horticulture industry.

Although the CNLA's purpose is to foster relationships and alliances with internal and external partners, the Association provides member certification and strives to help its members function more effectively. The CNLA provides training and qualifications to industry members in Certified Horticultural Technician (CHT) or Certified Landscape Professional (CLP) -- certifications that are highly regarded throughout the industry.
