The curriculum at CIFD has been developed to not only enable the student to learn the basics of floral design, but also to afford them an opportunity to see their own creativity emerge. We offer other courses for both the professional floral designer and the hobbyist. Seasonal design workshops for the holidays, weddings, and other special interest courses keep you honing your skills. The floral industry is linked very closely to trends in interior design and reflects and interprets these same trends through the use of color, form and the integration of organic materials. CIFD sees their role as the leading floral educational facility in Canada as your link to the exciting world of floral design.
