Did you know that during the Year of the Garden 2022 125 Public Gardens and 28 Parks Canada Gardens were featured on Canada’s Garden Route? In addition, 124 Garden-friendly Municipalities (representing 49.6% of Canada’s population) proclaimed 2022 as the Year of the Garden.

It is clear that public and private gardens, and the efforts by municipalities, the public, community groups, and garden organizations are a vital part of what makes Canada a beautiful and popular international tourism destination. That is why Gardens Canada became a proud Estuary Sponsor of the 2023 IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference in Victoria BC. Michel Gauthier, Garden’s Canada Executive Director and Brent Gavin, Partnerships Manager are traveling to Victoria BC to connect with representatives from Canada’s tourism industry to present how “Live the Garden Life 2023” will help the tourism sector impact global change and lead the world in a new age of environmental and social responsibility.
