Each year, all Landscape Ontario member companies must pay their dues renewal invoice in order to maintain membership status. Dues invoices for the 2020-2021 fiscal year will be sent out electronically in mid-August. In order to expedite the process, members are asked to ensure their contact information is up-to-date.

Members have three easy ways to pay their dues: online, by phone, or by mail. Pay online with a credit card using LO’s secure payment portal at HortTrades.com/dues. Or with credit card in hand, you can call LO’s membership services department at 1-800-265-5656 or 905-875-1805 to pay your invoice. Lastly, the bottom portion of your dues invoice can be mailed to the LO home office with either a cheque, payable to Landscape Ontario, or with the credit card portion completed.

Please do not plan to drop off the form or make a payment in person at the LO office as it is temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Members are reminded to renew their dues upon receipt or risk losing access to the many financial and networking benefits available to them as a current member (see special section on pages 21-28 for details on the many benefits of membership).

New membership categories were implemented earlier this year, and while most members should see no difference in their renewal fee, those who average 1.5 or less full-time staff can switch to the new Sole Proprietor category. Full time is defined as working 2,000 hours per year or equivalent. Qualifying members must contact LO at the number below to implement any category and fee change.

Members will receive renewal reminders in follow-up campaigns by email and phone before any unpaid memberships are cancelled.

Dues invoices are sent out in August as the association’s fiscal year ends Aug. 31.

If you have any questions about membership benefits, or to update your contact information, please contact the LO Membership Services Department at 1-800-265-5656 or 905-875-1805.
