Allan Foley

Chief Forester

Allan is a founding partner at FRMG. Two decades ago, he and his fellow founders saw an opportunity to create a company to improve the management of forests to benefit forest products companies, governments, Indigenous Peoples, conservationists, and the public.

With a career in forestry and sustainability spanning more than 30 years, Allan’s deep past experience gives him the perspective to guide FRMG into a sustainable future. Prior to FMRG, he worked extensively in northern Ontario as a logging superintendent, a planning forester, a woodlands operations manager, a sales manager, and an owner.

With the support of local forest industry leaders, Allan developed one of the first and most costeffective cooperative forest tenure business models in Ontario.

Allan was the Vice President of the Ontario Professional Foresters Association between 2008 and 2010, and in 2014, he received the association’s Herridge Award in recognition of his significant accomplishments in forestry. Allan studied forestry at the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia and obtained his B.Sc. in Forestry.
