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.
