Meet the Team
Hi my name is Gord, I am the owner of Wildwood Outdoor Living! First opening our doors in 1979 as Cannor Nursery, we’ve been serving the Greater Victoria area for 40+ years. We’ve always been passionate about plants, but in 2007 when I took full ownership, our big vision began to change. I started working with Cannor in 1980, when I saw the potential to grow it into something more and this is how the Wildwood Outdoor Living Centre was born! No longer just a nursery, but instead an all-in-one stop for your outdoor living needs; including garden supplies, water features, landscape design & hot tubs.

Hi my name is Launa. I am the Accountant at Wildwood Outdoor Living Centre. Since 2015, I have been balancing the books at Wildwood and making sure our staff get paid for all their hard work. I love to see the nursery stock arrive in the spring and watch the buds and blossoms come out.

Hi, my name is Jasmine! I am the Manager of Wildwood Outdoor Living Centre. Since 2001, I have kept a long to-do list of everything and anything to keep me busy, and our store running smoothly.
