Forests Ontario Annual Conference to Feature Forest Fire Experts

Feb 26th, 2024 8:58 AM

What: Forests Ontario’s Annual Conference is the largest forestry conference in Ontario. After last year’s unprecedented forest fires, this year’s conference will feature two sessions focusing on forest fires. 

The first features a photographic journey with a Parks Canada firefighter and the second features a panel of experts discussing the historical role of fire suppression, how to reduce the incidence and intensity of fires including learning from Indigenous cultural practices, the importance of restoration in the aftermath, and the economic implications of forest fires. 

The Honourable Graydon Smith, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry and MPP for Parry–Sound Muskoka is also scheduled to speak briefly between the two forest fire sessions.

When: Wednesday February 28, 2024, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. (The full conference runs from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. with the fire sessions starting at 3:00 p.m. The conference agenda is available online.) 

Where: Universal EventSpace (6250 Highway 7, Vaughan, ON L4H 4G3)
