Landscape Ontario staff Jane and Myscha are currently sending out membership renewals. We value all our members and hope you will respond promptly.

It is important to factor in the cost of your Landscape Ontario membership with your company’s bottom line. For your reference, here is a breakdown of the benefits and costs associated with each membership category. All costs listed include HST.

Active members: This classification is given to our seasoned professionals with over three years in business. Active members are entitled to all of the benefits offered by Landscape Ontario, including the use of the Green for Life logo. The cost of an active membership is $550.31.

Associate members: Associate members are companies and/or suppliers providing a product or service to the industry and are entitled to all Landscape Ontario membership benefits. The cost for an associate membership is $668.96.

Chapter associate: Like associate members, our chapter associate members provide a product or service to the industry, however, they are focused exclusively in one of our nine chapters. The fee for a chapter associate membership is $359.34.

Interim members: The interim membership is designed for those companies who are in the early stages of the journey (at least one year, but less than three years in business). This type of membership allows you to get a great introduction to the horticulture industry, while utilizing the resources and support Landscape Ontario has to offer. Once an interim member has been upgraded to an Active membership, after they have been in business for the required time, they are then entitled to the use of the Green for Life logo. The cost of an interim membership is $327.70.

Horticultural: This membership is based on one’s connection to the horticulture industry including teachers, media, government officials, etc. The fee for this membership fee is $175.15. This membership allows for an individual to stay connected to the industry through LO publications, chapter events, etc. However, cost saving benefits do not apply.

Student: If you are a student of horticulture wanting to get a foot in the door in the industry then this is the membership for you. Best of all, it’s free. Students enjoy a subscription to the Landscape Ontario publications, enews and are welcome to attend chapter meetings to network with future colleagues.

The complete list of membership benefits for each category can be found on the Horttrades website. Remember that not all benefits apply to each membership category.
