Forest Professionals BC (FPBC) works in the public interest by ensuring only those with the requisite education, experience, knowledge, and competence practise professional forestry.
We do this by setting education standards for professionals to enter the profession; setting professional service practice standards, competency standards, and a code of conduct; and holding our registrants to account for following professional standards via a public complaint and discipline process.
All FPBC registrants are bound by the Code of Ethical and Professional Conduct and are responsible for holding paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public and the protection of the environment.
FPBC registrants ensure the multiple values society has assigned to BC’s forests are balanced and considered. These pages explain the practice of professional forestry and activities undertaken by FPBC that may be of interest to the general public.
