Restricted members may not fully meet the educational and employment requirements needed to become a Registered Professional Forester or Registered Professional Forest Technologist and may not have successfully completed the ASFP registration exam. They may have expertise in specific aspects of forestry or an allied science. Restricted members are entitled to practice forestry in accordance with conditions set on the scope of their practice and length of time they may practice. They also have the right to use the title "Restricted member" and to sign and seal professional documents.
A member-in-training who is unable to practice under the supervision of a Registered Professional Forester or Registered Professional Forest Technologist, and whose job requires them to engage in the professional practice of forestry, may apply for restricted membership status while serving as a member-in-training. This is a transition mechanism, available for use while the ASFP switches to operating as a Right to Practice organization.
Applicants should complete the application form below and send all documents to the ASFP at Box 331, Station Main, Prince Albert, SK, S6V 5R7. Your completed application package consists of the application form, application fee, transcripts from all post-secondary institutions, a current resume, and a letter that explains why you are requesting restricted membership status and outlines your desired scope and length of practice. Once we receive this complete package, the Admissions Committee will review your application.
