Welcome to HortEducationBC

HortEducationBC (HEBC) is the voice for the ornamental horticulture and agriculture based trades in British Columbia. In 2005, HortEducationBC was launched following a similar structure to that developed in New Zealand in the 1980’s, adopting an environment where industries could identify and build training programs to meet particular industry-defined needs.

Employers & Sponsors

Did you know that if you sponsor an apprentice, you can receive up to $4000 per year in Federal and Provincial tax credits? Hiring an apprentice is a great way to improve your company by increasing the skill set of your business, and provide your customers with an experienced educated crew.


Want to get out and work, while building your career skills? Apprenticeship allows you to get hands-on training, earn a wage, and still gain the education you need to move up in the company, gain your journeyperson status, or go on to earn a diploma or degree.
