Who we are and what we do
Industry leaders who recognized the need for ongoing financial support to advance the interests of the ornamental horticultural sector founded the Ontario Horticultural Trades Foundation in 1979. The Foundation's mandate is to ensure a healthy future for the horticultural industry, through financial support of research and scholarships.
Each year, the Foundation makes available a number of scholarships, bursaries and awards available to high school and post secondary students. Please view the brochures below for scholarship criteria and application forms. Applications should be received by June 30.
Apply for a scholarship or make a financial contribution to the program.
For LO member companies who want to sponsor a local high school education program.
Sustain the industry you love.
