Founder and Executive Director
Mike Toffan is the Founder and Executive Director of Project Forest. In October 2020, Project Forest launched with a mission to create a community of environmentally responsible businesses with a unified mission to rewild Canada, one forest at a time. Mike is passionate about restoring disturbed landscapes across Canada, specifically, restoring ecological function to non-productive agricultural lands through working with conservation groups and Indigenous communities. Mike is committed to giving back to the land and the communities that he works with through open, respectful and thoughtful engagement. An outdoor enthusiast and wildlife advocate, Mike knew early in life that he wanted a job that let him explore nature. As the founder of Project Forest and a Registered Professional Forester, he’s contributed to the reforestation of tens of thousands of hectares across Western Canada.
