The SIAQ also maintains strong ties with partner organizations throughout the French speaking world such as the Société Française d’Arboriculture (France), the Association Suisse de soins aux arbres (Switzerland) and Arboresco (Belgium). Additionally, the SIAQ is a founding member of Quebec's horticultural trades association, the FIHOQ (Fédération Interdisciplinaire de l’horticulture ornementale du Québec).
