The Bancroft Area Forest Industry Association (BAFIA) members are typically small, family owned and operated forest practitioners ranging from loggers, sawmill operators, forest technicians, woodlot owners and managers. The geographic area of the Association and the majority of its members are defined as those lands that fall between Madoc north to Whitney and Denbigh west to Apsley in the province of Ontario, Canada.
Our mission statement is “to promote and sustain the forest industry in the Bancroft area”. We believe that sustainable forestry practices are necessary in this day and age. It is both good for the environment and business.
As a group we gather every month to voice our concerns and develop action plans to confront the issues facing our industry today.
