CERFO is the Centre d'enseignement (Teaching and Forestry Research Centre of Sainte-Foy Inc.). Early in the 1980s, the
Government of Qubec sponsored the creation of 'specialized
centres' of learning within some Qubec colleges. The
function of the specialized centres was to complement existing
research centres in applied research. The technological
transfer available to businesses strengthen the ties between
the colleges and their diverse clients. One result is a
better formation of students enrolled in the technical
programs of the regular sectors.

The Teaching and Forestry Research Centre of Sainte-Foy Inc.
was founded in 1984 by members of the Department of Forestry
Technology as well as representatives in the field of
forestry. In 1993, the specialized centres became
'Technological Transfer Centres'. CERFO is incorporated as a
non-profit organization. It works in concert with other
Qubec colleges teaching forestry. The Board of Directors of
CERFO comprises representatives of the forest industry and
members of the teaching profession. In addition, the Board
has the support of an advisory body of fourteen members.

The fundamental mandate of CERFO is to promote and support the
technological development of the forest industry. The Centre
fulfills its mission in the following four sectors of

applied research
technological transfer
in-house training
specialized communications.

Over the years CERFO has developed a solid expertise in the
sphere of forest activities:

forest planning
applied forestry
ecology in forestry
geographical information systems
wood processing.

The Centre stands ready to offer high standard professional
services. It can conceive and supply training services for
research, or the most advanced transfer of technology.
