Petition to the Government of Canada

  • Canada does not currently have a National Flower;
  • A National Flower that naturally occurs in every province and territory would be a symbol of Canada that would connect us with each other and with this great land;
  • The Master Gardeners of Ontario created an online poll to choose a National Flower that would (a) occur in every province and territory, and (b) not already be an official provincial or territorial flower; and
  • Almost 10,000 Canadians voted in the poll over a four-month period, and 79.5 per cent of the voters chose Cornus Canadensis (Bunchberry/Quatre-temps/Kawiscowimin (Cree)) as their preferred choice.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to designate Cornus canadensis as Canada’s Official National Flower.
