The Garden Centre of the Year Award is a part of CNLA’s National Awards of Excellence program. The award will help us recognize the professional work of our retail members based on a set of criteria.
Entries may come direct to CNLA, but only in the instance where a provincial association is not running a garden centre awards program. In provinces that have a program, entries will come direct from the association office.
There is an opportunity to become the Garden Centre of the Year Award title sponsor, click here for more information.
The overall winning entrant of the “Garden Centre of the Year” Award will be announced to the trade at the CNLA National Awards of Landscape Excellence, to be held in Kelowna, BC in August 2016. Winners will receive significant promotions including press releases, on the CNLA website and in the Special Awards edition of the newsletter. Category winners will also be notified and promoted at the awards ceremony, and in CNLA awards communications.
Congratulations to the winners!
