The OVMA has adopted the “Industry Standards for Good Practices in
Vegetation Management” created by the Industrial Vegetation Management
Association of Alberta, as the standard in good practice. It is available to
OVMA members for a reduced fee. See www.ivmaa.com for more information.
The OVMA is working closely with the IPM Council of Canada and the MOE to
produce the first Guide to Integrated Pest Management for Industrial Vegetation
Management. It is required study material for the Public Works IPM
certification, and will be available exclusively from the OVMA by the spring of
2015. The board of the OVMA has also committed to provide training which will
qualify for CEC’s under the Ontario IPM certification program.
web site www.ovma.ca is continually updated
with industry relevant information, including education opportunities,
legislative updates, and links to other relevant web sites. The Members Only
section will include copies of presentations made at educational seminars
sponsored by OVMA.
