Forests Ontario

Annual Conference 

Join us for our Annual Conference on February 14th in Alliston, ON!

This year’s theme is We the Forest.

Our forests are our future.

They provide us with food, shelter and warmth. They support the ecosystem services we depend on and they fight climate change.

But who speaks for the forests? In a complex economic and political climate, full of competing interests and priorities, how do we ensure that our forests remain at the forefront of our collective consciousness? How do we plan for their future when short-sightedness impacts their very existence?

Join us as we discuss the ways we can collaborate to ensure our forests’ future. Bring your passion; bring your voice.

This year, we’re excited to host many varied speakers from across the forest industry. Carol Phillips, partner at the renowned architecture firm Moriyama and Teshima Architects, joins us as the Keynote Speaker. Read more about her as you prepare for a full day of forest discussion, exploration and education!

Online registration will close on February 11th, 2020, but walk-in registrations are welcome on the day of the event. 

The Forests Ontario Annual General Meeting will be taking place on Friday, February 14th from 7:45am-8:45am, prior to the opening of conference. More details coming soon.


Every year, Forests Ontario brings together more than 400 landowners, forestry professionals, students, educators and those passionate about our forests to explore key issues. Over the years, we have explored challenges to our biodiversity, the value of forests to our health and well-being, and the importance of our forests to our communities. Join us every February as an attendee, sponsor or exhibitor, and take part in Ontario’s largest forestry conference.

The Forests Ontario Conference will be held at the Nottawasaga Inn, located in Alliston, 1 hour north of Toronto.
