Garden Tourism Awards

Garden Tourism is a significant component of the tourism industry. 

Dr. Richard Benfield author of Garden Tourism (2013) tells us according to his research,“Over the next 10 years, Canada will see unprecedented growth in garden visitation”.

“Our research shows that visiting the country’s spectacular gardens is something that large numbers of inbound tourists to Canada are very interested in adding to their itineraries,” said David Robinson, Vice President, Strategy & Stakeholder Relations of Destination Canada. “That the Canadian Garden Council is the North American leader on the subject of garden tourism is something about which we can build on.”

Garden Tourism Awards are presented to organizations and individuals who have distinguished themselves in the development and promotion of garden experiences as tourism attractions and motivators.
