THe CANAFLORA Story
What we do
We are in the business of delivering feelings. Whether it’s a gift basket to an employee on Christmas or the classic red roses for an anniversary, Canaflora is your one-stop shop. With our reliable network of local flowers shops and free standard cross-Canada delivery there is nothing we can’t do.
Primarily selling flowers, Canaflora uses an innovative business model to send these little (or big) bouquets of happiness. Considered a top brand across the country, we are the website to go to and the number to dial if you need to send a gift across the country or down the street.
The Canaflora seeds were planted by a young, bright-eyed Ukrainian entrepreneur dreaming of his own flower business. Andriy Azarov delivered pizza by day and tended to Canaflora by night, allowing it to blossom into the company it is today.
Azarov called local flower shops, explaining his vision and getting them on board. In time Canaflora was established as a reliable floral network with two of its own locations in Ottawa and Calgary — and Andriy stopped delivering pizza. After almost five years, the company is still going strong and continues to strive for floral excellence across Canada.
We are committed to 100% customer satisfaction. Many people say it, but we mean it. We’re a new business and our customers are the water to our roots, the sun to our leaves. This means our small company provides you with the best customer service you’ll ever get and the best product we’ll ever get.

President & CEO
When Exploriem.org heard about our business plan in 2012, they threw a shoe at us. It was a gold shoe with the title “Bootstrap award for best business model,” which earned us the winning title that year.
When we created the company we realized there were flaws in the way the flower business was run. The classic model was for the flowers to go through five steps before landing on your doorstep, which created extra costs and lowered quality. We decided to cut out the middleman, work out of a warehouse instead of a fancy storefront, and do as much as we can ourselves — all so we can pass on the savings and quality to you.
