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.

Representing over 1,300 Registered Forest Management Professionals, AAFMP ensures compliance with the Regulated Forestry Management Profession Act, and provide professional training opportunities.
Any person who qualifies for registration and is practicing forest management, as defined in the Act, must be registered with AAFMP. While registration is mandatory, we are proud to support quality regulatory activities including:
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.
If you wish to submit a complaint, please access the documents provided:
You can confirm if a person is a regulated registrant of AAFMP by searching the registrant directory
Council elections will commence in the spring of each year. If you are a regulated registrant of AAFMP and are interested in a rewarding and challenging volunteer position, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
