Communities in Bloom Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus on enhancing green spaces in communities. The program consists of communities receiving information and being evaluated either provincially or nationally by a volunteer jury of trained professionals on the accomplishments of their entire community (municipal, private, corporate and institutional sectors, citizens) on eight key criteria: Tidiness, Environmental Action, Heritage Conservation, Urban Forestry, Landscape, Turf & Groundcovers, Floral Displays and Community Involvement.

Vancouver Board of Parks & Recreation The first resolution of the first City Council in 1886 was to petition the Federal Government for the use as park, a 1,000-acre (404 hectares) peninsula which we now know as Stanley Park. Council designed an appointed Park Committee to manage its new charge by building trails and gardens. By 1890, the Park Board had become an elected body and remains the only Canadian board of its kind.
