Every two years the CUFC brings together dedicated individuals and groups to share their experiences and innovative approaches to the stewardship of Canada’s urban forests.  The 11th Canadian Urban Forest Conference will take place in Victoria, British Columbia from September 30 – October 2, 2014.

The conference theme “Urban Forests by Design” was developed to engage urban foresters with allied professionals, civic leaders and others in the common drive to build communities that are genuinely more sustainable, resilient, healthy, inclusive and affordable.
