The Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF-IFC) has served as the national voice of forest practitioners in Canada since 1908, making it the oldest not-for-profit forest organization in the country. The CIF-IFC represents a diverse group of people with interest in forests and forestry including (but not limited to) foresters, forest technologists and technicians, ecologists, biologists, and educators. …Executive Director Mark Pearson, explains, “Our Sections are the backbone of the CIF-IFC. They give us a strong local and regional network and presence.” …The CIF-IFC is comprised of 12 team members in charge of programs, initiatives, communications, and outreach. They also manage CIF-IFC committees and task forces on advocacy, policy and governance, membership, finance, National Forest Week, Silver Ring Program, and The Forestry Chronicle. The team’s mission is three-fold: to provide national leadership in forestry and forest stewardship, promote competency among forest practitioners, and foster public awareness and education of forest and forestry issues.
