The Tidy Towns Program has been developed as a provincial counterpart to the National Communities in Bloom Program. This program encourages people to work together for the improvement and well being of their communities, thus instilling a sense of pride and ownership. The benefits to the communities and to the province as a whole include improved quality of life, tourism development and economic development.
The following organizations are represented on the Advisory Committee. These groups offer Tidy Towns expertise in fields of horticulture, environmental conservation, landscape design, heritage and architecture to mention a few.
