The Canadian Nursery Certification Institute (CNCI) was founded in 2005. Developed by industry, it is the overall mandate of CNCI to administer nursery certification programs in Canada. It is the role of CNCI to:

  • approve industry-developed certification programs
  • administer third-party audit and verification programs
  • provide technical review of Certification Manuals
  • provide technical review of audit reports
  • grant certification status, and
  • provide on-going maintenance and administrative services of all certification programs

At the current time, the CNCI manages the Clean Plants Nursery Certification Program, developed by the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA).
