Enhancing Green Spaces
in Communities
People, Plants and Pride… Growing Together


Where are the Judges?


So much more than just flowers

Communities in Bloom is about greening through environmental, natural heritage conservation and horticultural actions that involve citizens, businesses, institutions, and municipalities.  The program is focused on environmental stewardship through enhancement of green spaces.


Welcome to the 24th Edition of Communities in Bloom.

We welcome all the participating communities in the 2018 Communities in Bloom program which includes the Provincial and National Editions, the International Challenge and promotional and educational programs offered by our sponsors and partners.

We encourage non-participating communities to learn more about the CiB program and to hopefully realize the many benefits that are achieved from participating.

We hope that you will join us for the 2018 National Symposium and Awards Ceremonies that will be held in Strathcona County, Alberta, September 26-29 with the theme of “Seeds for the Future”; several days of relevant topics and discussions, technical tours, entertainment and celebrations.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Communities in Bloom, I would like to thank all those involved in the continued success of the organization.  The commitment of local, provincial and national volunteers, the support of elected officials and staff of municipalities, the dedication of our volunteer judges, staff and organizations along with the contribution of our sponsors and partners are helping to make our communities cleaner, greener, more environmentally sound and better places in which to live, work and to visit.
