AAFMP is dedicated to public protection. We regulate and support professional Foresters and Forest Technologists for the enhancement of safe, ethical and competent forest management services in diverse practice environments.



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 registrants 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.

Representing over 1,300 Registered Forest Management Professionals, we ensure compliance with the Regulated Forestry Management Profession Act, act as a resource for training opportunities and connect like-minded professionals.

Any person who qualifies for registration and is practicing forest management must be registered with AAFMP. While registration is mandatory, we are proud to support quality regulatory activities including:

  • Credential assessments for applicants from non-accreddited programs and internationally trained individuals
  • Information and support for inquiries specific to regulation
  • Continuing competence program
  • Training and notice of other educational opportunities in Alberta
  • Networking opportunities with a broader community of stakeholders
  • Career postings

We also engage potential employers, industry and associations to communicate the value of the forest management profession and raise the profile of registrants in the field of forest management.

Forest Management

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

Forest management professionals are the stewards of healthy, sustainable forests in Alberta.

Forest practitioners protect and guide the growth of Alberta’s public forests. They understand the value and delicate nature of forests in Alberta. They work hard to protect and plan for the sustainability of forest ecosystems. With a watchful eye Alberta’s forests remain one of the province’s most valuable and beloved natural resources.
