Each year, every New Brunswick beekeeper, is required to complete an application form to keep bees and send it to the Provincial Apiarist at the department by May 31. The Provincial Apiarist then completes the “Certificate of registration and receipt to keep bees” form, assigns a registration number, and sends it to the beekeeper. This certificate is valid until May 31 the following year. There is no fee for the application and registration.
May 31 all-day
