About Us

The International Forestry Student’s Association (IFSA) is the global network for students in forest sciences and related fields that aims to bring students (undergraduate and graduate) together from all over the world through annual meetings, exchange and forums. It also provides a platform for students to be heard as it sends students to conferences put on by leading organizations in the forestry world as well as more regionally.

The local committee at UBC was established in 2011, after very passionate and inspired UBC students attended the 39th IFSS in Finland.

Since then, we’ve regularly sent delegations of IFSA-UBC members to these annual international conferences.

In addition to attending IFSS, IFSA-UBC actively takes part in regional meetings with other North American local committees, which occur twice a year.

We regularly organize community events to highlight international forestry conference opportunities or issues, and we collaborate with the entire Forestry faculty and even the greater UBC community! Our events may combine fund raising, educational or socio-cultural elements.

If you want to find out more about us, please send us an email (ifsa.ubc@gmail.com) or drop by one of our biweekly meetings (Wed 5pm, room 1715 in the Forestry building).
