Courtney McCann joined Landscape Ontario in  July as the association’s new Director of Workforce Development. The previous director Sally Harvey stepped down in May to focus on her business Green Design Landscaping.

McCann said she is thrilled to join the LO team, calling the position her “dream job.” She added that having had the experience to work alongside Sally Harvey on workforce development projects in the past, she always admired her passion and professionalism. She hopes to continue that legacy of dedication and enthusiasm.

“I see getting to work at Landscape Ontario as a perfect circle moment of all of my experiences where I get to do what I’m passionate about, with the skill set that I’ve developed throughout my years of work.”

McCann has held positions in workforce development for over 18 years. She hopes that through her time at LO she can create a welcoming atmosphere for all members and find solutions to workforce challenges.

“I am someone who loves problem solving and I want to bring that with me here by asking: ‘How is it that we do the work, and can we make it more efficient and easier for employers, for clients, and for staff?’ And also to reduce the barriers that employers, job seekers and employees may have.”

McCann said she is excited to come in as a learner rather than an expert and take in as much knowledge about this trade as possible. She also joked that she has extra motivation to keep her garden neat and healthy now that she is working with experts in the field.
