The Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) is a voluntary, not-for-profit, national association which represents the dynamic and diverse sector of Canadian agriculture known as horticulture.

The CHC's members grow, produce and pack more than 120 fruit and vegetable horticultural crops. The CHC has been committed to promoting the interests of its members since 1922.



The CHC has an unwavering commitment to advance the growth and economic viability of horticulture by encouraging cooperation and understanding to build national consensus on key issues, so as to deliver unified and clear representation to governments and other national and international parties.


The CHC has a clear mandate to be a strong and active presence in the nation's capital on behalf of the horticultural sector by bringing issues to the attention of the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, and to other federal and provincial ministers and departments, as directed by membership.


In the lead up to the 2015 federal election CHC is reaching out to all parties to make financial protection for produce sellers part of their commitment to Canadians. We
are looking for members of Canada's horticulture community to learn more and to join us by reaching out to the candidates and MPs in your area.  To join the campaign or the upcoming webinar, click on the links below.
