Bees and canola
The link between the canola and honey industries is strong and growing. Simply put, canola is good for bees, and bees are good for canola. Together, they are good for the health of our ecosystem and our economy.
The Canola Council of Canada and the Canadian Honey Council are working together to maintain this mutually beneficial relationship. As we foster communication and co-operation, both the canola and honey industries will continue to grow and thrive in Western Canada.
