Formation of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) for Public Works Vegetation Management Committee.

The OVMA has established a formal committee to address the requirement for IPM certification for individuals that design and plan public works vegetation management programs under the revised Pesticide Act Regulations. The committee is currently chaired by Diane Le Houllier from CP Rail. The previous chairs were John Bowen from Hydro One Networks Inc. and Jennifer Rose from Algoma Power Inc.

The OVMA wishes to add additional members to the committee from other sectors that will be impacted by the need for IPM certification. If you are interested please forward an e-mail to Nancy Cain at ovmaoffice@gmail.com.



The OVMA is a professional organization, established in 1984, that promotes environmentally safe vegetation management for the benefit of everyone. OVMA is a non-profit organization supported by membership dues and donations. Participants in OVMA include representatives from every sector of Ontario's vegetation management industry.
