Town of Whitby

Whitby is the 10th Bee City in Canada!

The Town of Whitby is committed to becoming a healthy, sustainable and complete community. Understanding that the pressures that pollinators face as a result of, pests and diseases, habitat loss and climate change, we are responding through action.

Our thanks and gratitude to high school student Aidan Brushett, whose love for pollinators became a driving force behind his hometown’s bid to become a Bee City! Among other things, the Town of Whitby will create new and improve existing pollinator gardens in its 55 parks while also protecting or enhancing naturalized areas.

By being the 10th Bee City, we join other Canadian communities and Bee City Canada in the commitment to support our bee populations and other pollinators.
