Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility, beautification and to improving quality of life through community participation and a national challenge.

The National and International results will be announced in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island during the Awards Ceremonies from September 17 to 20, 2014. The concurrent National Symposium on Parks and Grounds offers conference sessions, workshops, and technical visits with the theme of Celebrating People, Plants and Pride …20 years later.

Don’t miss the opportunity of hearing it live during the Awards Ceremonies in Charlottetown.

To support the educational aspect of its activities, the organization established the Communities in Bloom Foundation, a registered charity dedicated to funding, developing, and disseminating education and awareness on the value, improvement, importance and sustainable development of green spaces and natural environment in Canada.

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.

His Excellency, the Right Honourable David Johnston, C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M., C.D. Governor General of Canada is the Patron of Communities in Bloom.
