July 1, 2019, the College of Alberta Professional Foresters (CAPF) and the College of Alberta Professional Forest Technologists (CAPFT) merged to become the Association of Alberta Forest Management Professionals (AAFMP).

AAFMP is the provincial regulatory body for Alberta’s Forest Management Professionals. We support the continual development of our membership so that all Albertans can benefit from healthy, sustainable forests.

As we move to the future we are excited to deliver not only a new name, but a fresh unified approach to regulatory activities.

Forest Management

A forest management professional is someone who is connected to the environment and dedicated to protecting it. They have an appetite for lifelong learning and personal development, and actively collaborating with multi-disciplinary professionals.

We regulate, protect, and guide the growth of Alberta’s public rural and urban forests. We understand the value and delicate nature of our forests. We work hard to protect and plan for the sustainability of forest ecosystems. With our watchful eye, specialized education, and care, Alberta’s forests remain one of the province’s most valuable and beloved natural resources.
