Niagara Falls, ON – Students seeking to enroll in the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture will now be able to do so through OCAS. This integration will provide a streamlined application process for student applicants, while also raising awareness and exposure for the School.
The Niagara Parks School of Horticulture has an 80-year history of delivering innovative, experiential learning opportunities to its students, building a reputation as an industry leader and being recognized by the Ontario College of Trades through the Horticultural Technician Apprenticeship Qualification. The School offers students a three-year diploma with co-op training, working as paid apprentices at Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens.
Niagara Parks CEO, David Adames views this agreement as an important step in the continued growth and success of the School. “This partnership will help ensure that all Ontario students seeking a career on horticulture are aware of the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture and the unique learning opportunities that we offer here,” said Adames. “We look forward to working with OCAS to increase the visibility of our program, while making the application process as efficient as possible for students.”
