Membership in the Canadian Ornamental Plant Foundation signifies your support of the ornamental horticulture sector of Canada, and especially the development and distribution of exciting new and improved plant introductions.



If you are a nursery grower company that intends to propagate, grow and sell COPF registered plants, your membership in COPF will ensure a single source collection process for the payment of royalties and their redistribution back to the breeder.  You will save considerable time and money over paying royalties directly to the breeder.


If you are a breeder or introducer of new plant varieties, your membership in COPF allows you to register your new plant introductions and to have royalties collected from growers and redistributed back to you.
