March 1, 2019 – Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Forest Service has signed a five-year memorandum of understanding with Lakehead University and Confederation College in Thunder Bay to advance forest science research and education.

The agreement is aimed at increasing opportunities for all organizations to share expertise and resources in forest science and related research, collaboration and education initiatives. 

"This MOU represents our mutual support for the advancement of forest science research and education within our respective organizations and throughout Canada," says Dr. David Nanang, director general, Canadian Forest Service-Great Lakes Forestry Centre.

As part of the agreement, there will be increased opportunities in forest science research and education that may exceed what the organizations could do separately. There will also be increased sharing of intellectual and technical resources, including faculty and staff expertise and sophisticated research infrastructure and equipment and research sites.

The organizations say that the development of collaborative research projects, including more competitive grant proposals as well as the increased participation of CFS researchers as adjunct professors contributing to active mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students, will support an increased collaboration of forest science research and education.
