The City of Calgary has introduced beekeeping by-laws as part of the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw (effective January 1, 2022) which includes permitting requirements for all beekeepers within the City.
The City of Calgary has posted the Beekeeping license application form on their website. For beekeepers who kept bees prior to 2022, you have until the end of the year to obtain a license. The City requests one month to be able to process the application. If you obtained bees after January 2022, you are required to apply for your license at this time.
To apply for a license, you must complete the City of Calgary online form.
The City of Calgary requires that licensees comply with the Calgary Urban Beekeeping Guidelines.
