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 and ethical practice of registrants so that all Albertans can benefit from healthy, sustainable forests.

Complaints on Professional Conduct

A forest management professional is an individual who has specialized education, an appetite for lifelong learning and personal development and upholds ethical standards. They are obligated to meet a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

In the interest of protecting and serving the public interest, section 44 of the Regulated Forest Management Profession Act (the Act) gives the Association of Alberta Forest Management Professionals (AAFMP) the authority to discipline forest management professionals that are regulated registrants of the Association.
