Healthy honey bees are essential for beekeeping and for a sustainable society. The Alberta Beekeepers Commission supports over 175 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.
By partnering with the Alberta Beekeepers Commission on an annual sponsorship, your organization can not only take advantage of a cost-effective way to gain valuable brand exposure, but you are also contributing to the health and sustainability of the Alberta beekeeping industry.
