2020 Conference Program

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

We have a jam-packed schedule, with an amazing speaker line up, exhibitor hall, and social events planned!

This year’s theme “Diversity & Innovation - Cultivating Resilience in Forestry” recognizes that creative thinking by a diverse and inclusive network will foster the development of the forest sector’s capacity to adapt and recover from adversity.

Join fellow forest practitioners and professionals from coast to coast and abroad as we highlight the emergence of innovative technologies, practices and research that accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy and mitigate climate change. The contribution of Indigenous Peoples to sustainable forest management in Canada, and the indispensability of their inclusion will be showcased. Themed sessions on international forestry perspectives, caribou management in Canada, and diversity and inclusion in the forest sector will be featured. New and emerging uses of wood as a sustainable, green resource will also be explored.

CIF-IFC VIRTUAL STUDENT QUIZ BOWL

The Quiz Bowl is a fun and friendly academic competition, challenging the participants’ (and audience’s!) forestry knowledge. This event will be taking place on the evening of September 16th in a online/virtual format as part of the 2020 National Conference and 112th Annual General Meeting.
