OPFA's 60th Annual Conference & AGM

This year’s conference celebrates the Ontario Professional Foresters Association at 60: Foresters in Changing Climates. The three-day conference will examine the role of business, governments, and forest professionals in an era of significant shifts in political, economic and physical climates. Professional foresters have the expertise, and duty, to be responsive to these changes and be proactive in preparing for, mitigating and adapting to potential impacts to develop and sustain resilient human infrastructure. For those who are interested in attending or those who have never attended, this conference presents an excellent opportunity to network with foresters from across Ontario.
