About The Section
Northwestern Ontario Section
In 2020, the Northwestern Ontario Section received the CIF’s Section of the Year Award in recognition of the outstanding involvement of members in the affairs of the CIF-IFC leading to increased awareness of the importance of forestry in Canada.
To ensure our members know and adhere to the Mission by developing local programs and activities to enhance the appreciation of Section and National activities as they seek to promote leadership in forestry and public understanding of important issues that are constantly before the public and profession.
What We Do
The section members and council: host field tours and speaker presentations for CIF members and the public; support college and university students through bursaries, support for ring ceremonies and symposiums, and travel to the CIF National AGM; and, undertake work parties to support various local forestry projects.
Congratulations to Team Lakehead University for being crowned the 2022 CIF-IFC Quiz Bowl champs!
