Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss Association




Founded in 1988 to promote the benefits of peat moss to horticulturists and home gardeners throughout North America, the Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss Association is comprised of 18 peat moss producers and marketers representing 95 percent of Canada's total production. Canada, the world's largest producer and exporter of sphagnum peat moss for horticultural use, produces more than 98 percent of the sphagnum peat moss used in the United States.

In addition to promotional efforts, the CSPMA undertakes a pro-active campaign on environmental issues. This campaign resulted in our adoption of a Preservation and Reclamation Policy (revised 1999), the publication of an issue paper on Canadian Peat Harvesting and the Environment (second edition, 2001), and the production of an environmental video (2001) that has been viewed by hundreds of garden and environmental writers in Canada and the USA.
