People, Plants and Pride Growing Together

Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification of the community. The program consists of registered communities being evaluated, either provincially or nationally by a volunteer jury of trained professionals, on the accomplishments of their entire community (municipal, private, corporate and institutional sectors and citizens) on six key criteria:

  • Tidiness
  • Environmental Action
  • Heritage Conservation
  • Urban Forestry
  • Landscaped Areas/Turf and Ground Cover
  • Floral Displays

Community involvement is a key sector that has been incorported and evaluated within each criteria.
