The president of Flowers Canada Retail, Cor Smith and the president of Flowers Canada (Ontario) Inc., John McNiven Jr. have stated this is a positive move for the retail sector in Canada.  It brings all the florists in Canada under one roof and will create a strong branding and single source messaging for the retail business in Canada.

In effect Flowers Canada (Ontario) Inc. will now become a grower organization representing the interests of growers in Ontario.  The recent restructuring of Flowers Canada Inc. into the two sector divisions now known as FCR and FCG has now resulted in each sector being managed at one location for each in Canada.  Executive director Arman Patel from Ottawa will manage FCR, and FCO executive director Dr. Irwin Smith will manage FCG.
