Bee BC

The Bee BC Program provides up to $100,000 in funding over two years to support small scale regional/community-based projects to research, explore, field-test and share information about best management practices associated with bee health.

The objective of the Bee BC Program is to enhance bee health throughout the province. Bee health is important, not only for the production of honey, but also for the contribution that bees make to the pollination of many crop species and to the wider environment.
The program focuses on assisting regional or community-based organizations, beekeeping associations and/or beekeepers to contribute to the overall health of bees in the Province. Up to $5,000 per project is available through the Bee BC Program to assist with project costs.
