The OIPC is a non-profit organization founded in April 2007 by a group of individuals and organizational representatives who saw the need for a coordinated provincial response to the growing threat of invasive plants. We provide leadership, expertise and a forum to engage and empower Ontarians to take action on invasive plant issues. We do this by providing expert information on how to manage invasive plants through our best management practices documents and training webinars, hosting workshops for landowners, land managers and municipalities on specific invasive plant topics, creating awareness campaigns, non-invasive garden plant alternatives, working with a number of partners in a number of different fields to spread awareness and educating the public about preventing their spread, to name a few.
