Accredited Forestry Programs at Canadian Universities, for Foresters
The Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board (CFAB) accredits Canadian forestry programs at the baccalaureate level (bachelor's degree) or higher. This ensures that accredited programs meet or exceed common educational standards for registration as a Professional Forester in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. A list of accredited Canadian forestry programs at Canadian Universities is found here.
Professional Foresters and Professional Forest Engineers (from Quebec) in good standing may transfer to another province with relative ease because of common cross-Canada standards for education and competencies. This is in line with a Mutual Recognition Agreement signed by the provincial professional foresters associations that belong to the Canadian Federation of Foresters Associations (CFPFA) and Canada's Agreement on Internal Trade.
