National Bee Diagnostic Centre Backed

Almost $1.2 million in federal backing has been pledged for a national centre for diagnostic health tests on bees.

Grande Prairie Regional College will get $1,193,500 from Western Economic Diversification Canada to set up the National Bee Diagnostic Centre at Agriculture Canada s Beaverlodge Research Farm in the Peace River area.

The centre will offer a wide range of comprehensive services to beekeeping businesses all under one roof, the government said.

It will focus on detection and diagnostics, as well as scientific support to facilitate imports and exports of bees, and preventing or reducing winter losses.
