It’s the day of the honey bee, recognizing the significant role the province’s honey bees and native pollinators play in BC’s agricultural industry.

“Honey bees and native pollinators may be small in size, but their everyday role in the lives of British Columbians is big and can be seen throughout the province,” said Agriculture Minister Lana Popham. “Whether they’re pollinating crops for our agricultural sector or providing BC honey, bees are important to each and every one of us. Through programs like Bee BC, we are ensuring the health of honey bees for future generations.”

The Bee BC program provides funding to regional and community-based projects that support the health of BC’s bees. Projects include research, exploration, field testing and sharing information about bee health. The latest funding supports 15 new projects.
