Presidents Message

Welcome to COHA Connections, the official research website of the Canadian Ornamental Horticulture Alliance.

After many years of ad hoc collaboration, followed by more than 10 years of formalized cooperation enabled by Agriculture and AgriFood Canada’s (AAFC) AgriScience Cluster programming, as a sector we are working together to advance the research needs and accomplishments of Canada’s very diverse and economically important ornamental horticulture sector.

COHA Connections plays a key role in the research investment being made by sector and our partners together with the Government of Canada.  Research outcomes need to be accessible to the growers and other players in the value chain who can use them.  This strong communication link between industry practitioners and the research community is essential.

COHA Connections is funded jointly by COHA-ACHO and  Agriculture and AgriFood Canada’s (AAFC)  AgriScience Cluster component.  The key objective of the website is to communicate relevant project results on the 10 research activities that have been co-funded by AAFC and our valued industry partners as part of the current cluster program.

COHA strives to be a true industry alliance that unites diverse organizations and industry sub-sectors.  To live up to our name and our commitment, COHA Connections is intended to be your one-stop website for all industry-related research matters, including the research work that is ongoing by our Alliance and other industry partners.  We look forward to connecting with you and welcoming you back many times!
