The Association of British Columbia Forest Professionals (ABCFP)

The College of Alberta Professional Foresters (CAPF)

The Association of Saskatchewan Forestry Professionals (ASFP)

The Canadian Institute of Forestry/Institut forestier du Canada (CIF/IFC), a non-regulatory body, holds a seat on the CFPFA on behalf of those provinces which do not have their own professional foresters association and have not met the membership requirements for joining the CFPFA. The CIF/IFC makes representations on national forestry issues, which do not relate directly to the mandate of the CFPFA.


The Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board (CFAB), while not a regulatory body, is also a member of the CFPFA since it acts as an instrument of the professional regulatory bodies in the accreditation of university-level degree programs and has common cause with many of the issues with which the CFPFA deals.
