We are a volunteer managed, Canadian registered non-profit corporation celebrating Canadian developed roses and the cultivation of roses from coast to coast. By education, in various forms, we aim to encourage the growing of roses in both private and public gardens. Our extensive knowledge and experience make our Society a valuable resource for any Canadian gardener considering adding some roses to their garden.
Our Society dates back to 1913 with the founding of The Rose Society of Ontario in Toronto. By 1954 membership had spread across the country and, to reflect that fact, our name was changed to the Canadian Rose Society. We are affiliated with regional rose societies across Canada.
