    Congratulations to all National and International Finalists

    The 2017 National Edition and International Challenge evaluations are completed.

    The volunteer Communities in Bloom judges visited with dedicated people, evaluated great communities and witnessed civic pride at its best:

    “Within the context of climate change and environmental concerns, all those involved in
    the Communities in Bloom program can be proud of their efforts,
    which provide real and meaningful environmental solutions and benefit all of society.”

    Thank you, and congratulations, to all the elected officials, municipal staff, local stakeholders, citizens and volunteers involved in making their communities better places to live in, to work in and to visit.

    Be proud and celebrate your achievements!

    The results will be announced at the Awards Ceremonies on September 15 and 16 in Ottawa-Gatineau held in conjunction with the National Symposium on Parks and Grounds.

    We invite all communities to join us in celebrating Canada’s 150th Anniversary.
