2017 Communities in Bloom Editions

The Niagara Story Place sponsored by Calhoun

Communities in Bloom is proud to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary.

In 2017, hundreds of Canadian communities will be participating in the national and provincial editions of Communities in Bloom (CiB), along with municipalities from the United States, Italy, Ireland, Belgium, Croatia and Northern Ireland in the International Challenge.

Communities in Bloom is proud to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary.

There are three levels of competition: Provincial, National, and International. In July and August, qualified volunteer judges will visit participating communities and evaluate each one on its overall performance within the following criteria: tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape and floral displays.  As community involvement is the essence of the program, the evaluation, which provides guidance on further steps of improvement, is based on the local conditions and achievements of citizens, businesses, organizations, institutions and the municipal government working together towards common objectives.

The communities will be rated from 1 to 5 Blooms, based on the scoring obtained. Also, the National and International Communities will aim to obtain Bronze, Silver or Gold levels in their 5-Bloom rating.

The National and International results will be announced in Ottawa/Gatineau, National Capital Region from September 13 to 16, 2017 during the Symposium and Awards Ceremonies with the theme of “Communities and Green Spaces …Celebrating Canada’s 150 Anniversary”.

Communities in Bloom  is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus on the enhancement of green spaces in communities.

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.
