Invasive species in Forestry: Impacts, Management, and Action in Ontario

  • 22 June 2022

Are you working in the forestry sector within Eastern Ontario?

The Forestry Skills Advance Ontario initiative provides industry with an opportunity to access training for its existing workforce. Workers who are already employed within the forestry sector or within wood products manufacturing facilities are able to upgrade their skills through Algonquin and Fleming Colleges who have developed many training programs that have been recommended by the industry.

In partnership with Algonquin College, the Canadian Institute of Forestry/Institut forestier du Canada (CIF-IFC) is coordinating a number of online training opportunities/workshops in the month of June, 2022!

The following webinar is hosted by the CIF-IFC and the Invasive Species Centre.
