Canada’s Provincial Flowers
We are pleased to put together this compilation of provincial flower photography sent in by members of the Share Lawyers community. We asked our Facebook followers to submit original photos of their provincial flowers and we received submissions from six provinces! If you have images of the provincial flowers from Quebec, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, PEI, Northwest Territories, or Yukon, please share them with us and we will add them to our blog.
British Columbia’s Dogwood - Photo Courtesy of Rick Gman
Rick, we are so appreciative of your photo of the British Columbia Dogwood. What a gorgeous flowering tree. The bark of this flowering tree is smooth and grey, while the flowers grow in clusters of 20-40 around a few leaves. This wood has sometimes been used to make piano keys!
Alberta’s Wild Rose - Photo courtesy of Shawna Kelly Sharpe
Matshona Dhliwayo said that “A rose does not answer its enemies with words, but with beauty,” and that can definitely be said of this flower, thanks to the lovely picture sent in by Shawna. While this looks like it could be a flower on its own, it’s actually a shrub. The flower itself smells amazing and is a lovely pink colour with yellow accents.
Saskatchewan’s Western Red Lily - Photo courtesy of Yolanda Yobb and Ross Carter
Yolanda and Ross sent in these gorgeous orange flowers. The Western Red Lilies are not only beautiful, but the bulbs are also edible! They flower in June, July, and August and are a beautiful vibrant colour in the Saskatchewan landscape.
Manitoba’s Prairie Crocus - Photo courtesy of Yolanda Yobb and Ross Carter
Yolanda and Ross also sent this gorgeous picture of Manitoba’s provincial flower, the Prairie Crocus. These flowers can handle windy and dry landscapes and grow all across the prairies. Don’t eat this flower - it can be poisonous!
Ontario’s Trillium - Photo courtesy of Amanda Masters
There are actually five native trillium flowers, but the most common is the white trillium, pictured above by Amanda. This flower is special with its unique three petals and is quite fragile.
New Brunswick’s Purple Violet - Photo Courtesy of Heather Brown
These beautiful purple violet flowers are made even more beautiful by this photo taken by Heather Brown. Wow. These flowers are also used in jams and they can be an amazing medicine. The properties of these flowers can help with a bad cough. These flowers thrive in wet landscapes.
We’d love to hear about the flowers you love in Canada - whether they are provincial flowers or not! The Share Lawyers team is proud to be Canadian and we look forward to celebrating our Canadian landscape, whether the season is spring, summer, fall, or winter.

A note from our long term disability lawyers
Taking a medical leave from work is not an easy decision to make. Concerns about providing for yourself and your family and keeping your job may cause you to want to push through your pain, but this won’t make your problems go away. Stopping work is often the smartest decision for your long term health and well-being, and your disability benefits are there to provide you with financial support until you can return to work.
If you have made the tough decision to stop working and apply for your short term disability or long term disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed by the process and have questions that your employer and your insurance company are not able or willing to answer. Share is There to see you through and answer your questions.
Our Disability law firm knows what you have been going through
We understand that things have not been easy for you over the last little while. Your health has been suffering, you are unable to work, and now your insurance company, who was supposed to be there in your time of need, has decided they will not pay your disability benefits or respect your disability claim. These benefits exist to provide you with the financial support you need so that you can focus on your health and rebuilding your life. It is unfortunate that your insurance company has not lived up to its promise. If your disability claim has been denied, we will fight to get you the benefits you are entitled to. Our disability lawyers have helped thousands of Canadians get their long term disability benefits over the past 35 years, and we can help you too.

Our team of experienced long term disability, life insurance, employment, and critical illness insurance lawyers have made successful claims against many insurance companies, third-party administrators and employers.
If you are unable to work, your disability benefits should be there to provide you with the financial support you need. While your insurance company may be focused on finding ways to avoid paying your claim, our focus is on what is in your best interest. When Share Lawyers gets involved, you have an entire team of lawyers that are there to support you and to fight for what is yours.
Our disability claim lawyers fight for your disability insurance claim by relying on our many years of experience to apply the best strategic planning and approach in each case, using the latest technology available. Experience matters, and with Share Lawyers, you are in the best hands with 35 years of success on your side.
In this video, we explain the role of a long term disability lawyer and how we can support you when you have been denied your long term disability benefits.
