The school first opened its doors in 1935, as the first institution of its kind in the province of Quebec to offer forestry-related studies. Over the past 70 years, the school has trained over 7,000 professionals to work in the industry and has since established itself as a provincially, nationally and internationally respected institution.

Currently, the school is undergoing major structural changes that will see the construction of a new training centre, a sawmill as well as a wastewater treatment plant.
