FRIAA serves the people of Alberta and is accountable to the Minister responsible for Forestry. Over nearly two decades, FRIAA has helped Alberta continue to develop world-class forest management practices and a sophisticated understanding of the relationships between things like human activity, forest resources, species at risk, and wildfire.

FOREST RESOURCE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

Forest Resource Improvement Program (FRIP) projects enhance forest resources and improve the integrated management of Alberta’s forested lands for the benefit of Albertans.

The Community Reforestation Program (CRP) supports sustainability of forest resources by reforesting cutblocks harvested by smaller timber operators.

MOUNTAIN PINE BEETLE PROGRAM

The Mountain Pine Beetle Program (MPBP) supports efforts aimed at controlling, suppressing and eradicating mountain pine beetle in Alberta.

MOUNTAIN PINE BEETLE FOREST REHABILITATION PROGRAM

The MPBFRP provides funding for the rehabilitation of pine-dominated forests that have been negatively impacted by mountain pine beetle and are not expected to recover in a reasonable time period on their own.

WILDFIRE RECLAMATION PROGRAM

The Wildfire Reclamation Program (WRP) helps to re-establish forest cover damaged and destroyed by wildfire on areas that already underwent, or were in the process of undergoing, reforestation.

FRIAA FIRESMART PROGRAM

The FRIAA FireSmart program helps communities and residents manage and reduce the threat of wildfire. The program supports communities in carrying out activities aimed at reducing the threat of wildfire.

CARIBOU HABITAT RECOVERY PROGRAM

The Caribou Habitat Recovery Program (CHRP) supports Alberta Environment and Parks’ efforts to sustain and improve caribou habitat in a way that supports healthy and self-sustaining caribou populations.

The Enhanced Reforestation of Legacy Disturbance

The Enhanced Reforestation of Legacy Disturbance (EnRLD) program provides funds to sequester carbon by reforesting public lands that have been disturbed by wildfire.
