Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP)

The Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP) is responsible for registering and regulating British Columbia's professional foresters and forest technologists.

In British Columbia, the practise of professional forestry has been regulated since 1947 when foresters first agreed to help protect the public's interest in the province's forests in return for the exclusive right to practise forestry. Today, the ABCFP is the largest professional forestry association in Canada and the first to include forest technologists.

Our Mission: To protect the public interest by ensuring BC has competent and accountable forest professionals who achieve good forest stewardship.

The ABCFP will be exhibiting in Terrace, Merritt, Chilliwack, and Campbell River.
