Are there any Alberta queen breeders? Any contact information?
Seems like Beemaid brings in from California or Hawaii. Is that a good thing?

Albert Robertson in Saskatoon is best known for his Saskatraz bees. He sells queens and cells as well as supplying stock for US breeders and queen suppliers.

I think last I checked on the Saskatraz website all commercial handling of Saskatraz queens was being done by Kona Queens and Olivaerez out of Hawaii and California.
Recent article in the ABJ, August 2017, Vol.157, page 893.
'Growing Canada's Queen Industry' by Miriam Bixby and Alison McAfee.
Interesting read on the Beenomics research project in BC and various stats and charts.
Queens available soon it looks like.
