The Master of Sustainable Forest Management (MSFM) is a one year professional graduate degree that provides advanced study in natural resource stewardship. Intended for graduates from science-based Bachelor degree programs, the MSFM is accredited by the Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board (CFAB) to enable graduates to meet the core academic requirements for certification of the member agencies of the Canadian Federation of Professional Foresters Associations (CFPFA). This is a new path to becoming a Registered Professional Forester.
We graduated our first cohort of students in May 2013 and all have found employment in the natural resource sector.
Applications for the MSFM program, August 2014 start, is open now and the final application deadline is February 28, 2014. We use a rolling admissions process in which applications are evaluated in the order which they are completed.
