CANADIAN HONEY COUNCIL
The Canadian Honey Council (CHC) is the national organization of the beekeeping industry. It is a not for profit organization, established in 1940 and incorporated in 1950.
The Canadian Honey Council is the national association of beekeepers representing apiculturists across Canada. The CHC provides a forum where producers, packers, professionals, provincial associations and officials from different levels of government can talk and recommend action in the best interests of the Canadian honey bee industry. 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.
INFORMATION FOR BEEKEEPERS
Maintaining and supporting our beekeeping industry is crucial during this time.
The Canadian Honey Council is monitoring developments as they impact our industry. We are working in close liaison with the Canadian Government, provincial/territorial governments, and provincial bee associations to gather and share information and develop strategies for dealing with the emergent issues in our industry.
This site will be updated with the most recent information, developments and direction being provided as quickly as they are formalized.

Canadian Bee Research Fund
AS Atwal Graduate Scholarship in Bee Research ($5000)
The Canadian Bee Research Fund (CBRF) was established to counteract the problems caused by severe reductions in federal and provincial funding for honey bee research. It is a joint project of the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists and the Canadian Honey Council. The Board of Directors is comprised of four members, two from CAPA and two from CHC. The Canadian Honey Council takes direction from the CBRF board of directors and administers the fund as required.
The CBRF has been set up as a long-term endowment fund. Interest generated by the CBRF is made available for annual grants. Beekeepers direct the type of research that they want to support. The CBRF is entirely supported by donations from the apiculture industry and is a unique partnership between CAPA researchers and CHC members.
Save Our Bees
Bee health is an growing public concern and more and more attention is being put on finding solutions to mitigate losses.
The honeybee is the cornerstone of the environment and is critical to our food supply around the world. Scientists from the U.S.A. to France and Spain and all the way to U.K. and China are trying to solve the mystery of what’s causing the disappearance of the honey bee. Your help is needed to help our pollinators. Corporate and individual donations are very much appreciated … and we need you to help Save Our Bees. All funds (100%) donated to Save our Bees are deposited into the Canadian Bee Research Fund, a registered charity that distributes funds for bee health research.
