The Canadian Horticultural Council’s (CHC) Annual General Meeting (AGM) is an opportunity for leaders in fruit and vegetable production, retail, business, and the federal government to come together to discuss issues and decide on a course of action for addressing these issues in the coming year.

Don’t miss your chance to be seen and heard.

CHC's 2018 AGM will take place at the Westin Ottawa, 11 Colonel By Drive, on March 13-15, 2018.


Details available soon.


Business sessions will address issues of top priority for CHC members and include presentations and panel discussions on the many issues facing horticulture. Government officials and allied sector representatives will be on hand to hear your concerns and participate in the debate, and guest speakers will shed light on the issues that matter most to you.

More details coming soon.
