Welcome to the Nova Scotia Beekeepers

To contact NSBA, please email: nsbeekeepers@gmail.com

We are a volunteer organization that strives to represent the bees, beekeepers and beekeeping industry in Nova Scotia.

There are around 400 active beekeepers in Nova Scotia accounting for approximately 25,000 hives. Each hive should have about 50-60,000 bees at its peak in midsummer so there are just over 1 billion potential bee-ings for our group!


Mission Statement

The mission of the Nova Scotia Beekeepers Association is to support and assist Nova Scotia beekeepers in maintaining healthy, profitable and sustainable apiaries through education, communication and the supply of services.


Some benefits of joining the NSBA include:        

  • Your voice being potentially heard in the industry
  • $2 million dollars liability insurance coverage for all members while working on behalf of the NSBA
  • A way to meet other beekeepers in your area and networking opportunities
  • A subscription to "Hive Lights"; the magazine of the industry in Canada
  • Bulk pricing and delivery for queens advantages
  • A seasonal newsletter
  • A source of information on NS beekeeping
  • A platform from which to buy and sell bees, gear, products and services
  • Participation in the Maritime Summer Bee Tour

Please note: in an effort to practice social distancing to ensure the health of Nova Scotians, NSBA Administrators will now be working remotely, however, can still be reached by email or phone. The physical NSBA office will be closed for the foreseeable future.
