Working in Ontario
The Ontario Professional Forester’s Association regulates the practice of professional forestry in Ontario. You must be licensed with the Association if you want to become a Registered Professional Forester in Ontario. You can contact the Association to learn about licensing requirements.
Tools and Information
The Ontario Government has partnered with the Ontario Professional Foresters Association (OPFA) to create a Career Map for internationally trained foresters. The Career Map explains in detail every step of the registration process including language requirements, labour market conditions, the credential assessment process, licensing fees and other important information.

Bridge training programs: If you are qualified in your profession but new to Ontario, you may benefit from a bridging program. Bridging programs help qualified immigrants move more quickly into their professions without duplicating what they have already learned.
