New Beekeepers

Welcome to Alberta Apiculture! To get started, please fill out our Registration Form and return it to bee@gov.ab.ca. It is mandatory to register. The information is used for monitoring diseases and pests to ensure healthy bees as stated in the Bee Act and Regulations. It is also used to keep industry statistics up to date. If you have questions beyond what our Frequently Asked Questions answers, please click here.
Premises Identification Number
All new and registered beekeepers are required to have PID number. The PID is provided through Alberta’s traceability program and is separate from the apiculture program registration number. The PID number is a requirement to have access to medications for bee diseases and pests. Follow instructions in the PID application to register.
