WHEREAS the goal of Bee City Canada is to promote healthy, biodiverse habitats for pollinators in communities across Canada.

THAT bees and other pollinators around the globe have experienced dramatic declines due to land fragmentation, habitat loss, use of pesticides, industrialized agriculture, climate change and the spread of pests and diseases, with serious implications for the future health of flora and fauna for the planet; and

THAT colleges and universities have the opportunity to take actions to support pollinators by creating healthy habitats within their grounds and the broader community; and

THAT supporting pollinators fosters environmental awareness, increases interactions and engagement among campus community members and reminds us of our responsibility to take care of mother earth for future generation; and

THAT staff be authorized to submit the Bee City Canada Campus Application to designate (college/university) as a Bee City Campus; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED:

THAT your campus accepts the designation and commits to the standards of the Bee City Canada Program.
