What is CIF-SEEK?
The Canadian Institute of Forestry/Institut forestier du Canada (CIF/IFC) members across 18 national sections work in various levels of government, multiple industry sectors, and academia; and include foresters, technicians, biologists, ecologists, researchers, scientists and educators, all with interest and passion in forests and the complex ecosystems that they encompass. Through membership and partnerships (i.e. registered professional foresters and forest and natural resource technicians and technologists), the Institute networks some 10,000 interdisciplinary forest practitioners and professionals, as well as a significant contingent of the environmentally conscious public.
The Institute’s new national tree-roots network Science-Extension-Education-Knowledge (CIF-SEEK) takes advantage of this pervasive network to facilitate forest science and research projects with a wide array of partners. CIF-SEEK leads the practical application of their outputs and results at local, regional, and national scales. The Intstitute is well-equiped to promote the uptake of this science to forest and integrated land and resource managers, which leads to growth and diversity in both membership and partnerships.
Providing leadership and accountability in the successful implementation of science to support sustainable forestry and integrated land and natural resource management across Canada.
To be an objective platform for interdisciplinary forest science collaboration and extension, and to effectively catalyze application into policy, planning and practice – at regional, provincial and national scales.
