Canopy Growth Receives Green Legacy Award at Province’s Largest Forestry Conference

Alliston, ON [February 18, 2020] - Forests Ontario’s 6th annual conference brought together more than 400 landowners, forestry professionals, Indigenous leaders, educators and students on February 14th in Alliston.

"It’s fitting that our conference is on Valentine’s Day, as a love for forests repays a thousand-fold," said Rob Keen, CEO of Forests Ontario. "Our forests provide us with food, shelter, and warmth; they support the ecosystem services we depend on; they fight climate change when we take care of our forests, they take care of us."

This is the largest forestry conference of its kind in the province and featured presentations, local exhibitors, a silent auction for charity, and an awards ceremony which recognized important contributors to forestry.
