Our Story

A United Voice

The Canadian Forest Owners (CFO) exists through the union of the Canadian Association of Forest Owners, and the Canadian Federation of Woodlot Owners. Recognizing that the two organizations were both committed to the sustainable management of private forest resources, the merger gives the Canadian Forest Owners a stronger, united voice on national forest issues of interest to private forest owners.
