CANADIAN HONEY COUNCIL

The Canadian Beekeepers Council was formed in 1940 to assist in negotiating fair practices for labeling, grading, and marketing honey at the national level. The fledgling organization was underfunded and slow to communicate. It was difficult to respond to issues or develop the international markets that the members wanted. It was clear that there was a need for a higher profile and increased international recognition. In 1970 The Canadian Beekeepers Council decided to change its name to Canadian Honey Council (CHC). Currently, the CHC membership consists of representatives of Provincial Associations with the total number of beekeepers at approximately 10,000 managing over 750,000 colonies.
