Manitoba Organization: Manitoba Forestry Association

On 18 January 1901, a meeting was held in Winnipeg to encourage the formation of an organization relating to forestry in Manitoba, and through the 20th century, there are periodic references in historical newspapers to the Manitoba Forestry Association. However, this Winnipeg-based organization traces its formal origins to the early 1970s.
