As announced by Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture on Thursday May 29, 2019, the Bee BC Program will provide up to $100,000 in funding for the 2019-20 fiscal year, ending March 31, 2020. The program supports 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.
