The challenge is on!
Montréal will be hosting the 46th Apimondia International Apicultural Congress in 2019.
As many of you know, APIMONDIA is the International Federation of Beekeepers’ Associations. Its major objective is to facilitate the exchange of information and discussions by organizing Congresses and Symposia where beekeepers, scientists, honey-traders, agents for development, technicians and legislators meet to listen, discuss and learn from one another. Apimondia meetings are fabulous events that offer great opportunities to learn about all the aspects of the beekeeping world. During these meetings, from morning until late evening, participants explore various exhibits and learn about cutting edge research from all parts of the world.
The last Canadian Apimondia was the 36th Congress, “Apimondia 1999”, held in Vancouver. It was a spectacular success and many beekeepers consider it the best Apimondia in recent years! The Canadian Honey Council (CHC) also hosted an Apimondia Symposium in Québec on honeybee pathology and queen breeding in 2012. It was very well attended and a great experience for the local organising committee and the CHC. It is a great opportunity to promote and showcase our Canadian beekeeping industry and we have the expertise and the means to host such an event.
