The Canadian Nursery Landscape Association has implemented some new initiatives to benefit Canada’s landscape contractors.
Its recent Landscape Summit, held in Toronto during August, brought contractors together from across the nation to discuss sector challenges and opportunities. Participants identified scarce labour and the industry’s image as its two top priorities. CNLA will focus its services for the construction sector on these areas.
In other news, CNLA has invited Liz Klose on staff to serve as landscape sector priorities specialist. Former superintendent of the Niagara Parks Commission School of Horticulture, Klose brings experience, stature and enthusiasm to her assignment.
See CNLA News in the September issue of Landscape Trades for more details.
