Hire a Forest Professional

As an employer in the forest sector in BC, your due diligence starts by hiring the right person for the job

In British Columbia, the Foresters Act defines the practice of professional forestry and limits it to certain members of the Association of BC Forest Professionals, namely registered professional foresters, registered forest technologists and special permit holders. The Foresters Act may impact how your organization deals with forest issues and who you hire to carry out forestry work.

When a position needs to be filled by a forest professional, make sure your candidates are registered with the ABCFP and eligible to practice professional forestry in BC. To find out whether an individual is registered with us, check our online member directory.
