Healthy honey bees are essential for beekeeping and for a sustainable society. The Alberta Beekeepers Commission supports over 165 dedicated commercial beekeepers, who care for over 315,000 honey bee colonies, producing on average over 35 million pounds of pure honey per year, making Alberta the largest producer of honey in Canada.

Alberta honey bees also provide essential pollination services for canola seed production. Canola growers buy $1 billion worth of seed per year to grow this signature crop, whose total economic impact surpasses $25 billion per year.
