Learn More



In summer 2015, the College of Alberta Professional Foresters (CAPF), and the College of Alberta Professional Forest Technologists (CAPFT) came together to form one stronger voice under the new name Association of Alberta Forest Management Professionals (AAFMP).

Together we are becoming 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 look. This website will continue to be developed over the next few years, and until it is complete please visit the CAPF and CAPFT websites for further information, or contact AAFMP.

Our members

Representing over 1,600 Registered Forest Management Professionals, we work on our members’ behalf to strengthen and grow the profession in Alberta. We ensure compliance with the Regulated Forestry Profession Act, advocate on behalf of members, act as a resource for up-to-date industry and profession-related information, and connect like-minded professionals.

Any person who qualifies for registration and is practicing forest management must be registered as a member with AAFMP. While registration is mandatory, we are proud to offer members:

  • Information and support for specific inquiries
  • High-quality continuing competence programs and training
  • Workshops and other educational opportunities in Alberta
  • Networking opportunities with members, and the broader community of stakeholders
  • Career prospects

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

For more information about registering as a member, please refer to our two existing websites, CAPF and CAPFT, until our new AAFMP website is completed.

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.

We are the stewards of healthy, sustainable forests in Alberta.

The Stakeholder Engagement Community

Demand for stakeholder engagement and consultation is growing in Canada. As part of our commitment to assisting our members in their professions, The Stakeholder Engagement Community is an online, not-for-profit community of like-minded individuals working in stakeholder engagement and consultation.

The Stakeholder Engagement Community provides:

  • A Twitter feed that shares relevant industry stories, news articles, and blog posts
  • A LinkedIn group that enables practitioners to post industry-related questions and join discussions
  • The 2017 North American Stakeholder Engagement and Consultation Practitioners Survey and report

    We encourage those practicing stakeholder engagement or consultation to consider participating in the survey. After the survey closes, results will be compiled and a free, downloadable report will be available to you. This knowledge will assist practitioners in understanding industry trends and will help them to benchmark their own activities against others in the industry.
