Hi Duman,
It's hard to say, but I assume you would start with new bees and equipment. A full hive is about $300. A nuc is about $125, and a queen is around $25. I live in the southern portion of North America and our winters can be tough at this elevation. The winters in Canada may be much harder that Iran. It may be pretty cool in your area though. That is something to consider. Good luck. :)

Welcome to Beesource!

It is possible for a person to get the necessary Canadian government approval to immigrate to Canada without a lot of money. You either need to be in a particular job category in high demand, or already have a permanent job arranged with a Canadian employer.

More info at this site: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/apply-who-instructions.asp?expand=arranged#arranged

Beekeeper is not one of the jobs on the list of high demand, so you would need to have a formal job offer from a Canadian beekeeper to utilize this program.

Hi Duman,
You're welcome. I'm not sure how lucrative it would be, but it is probably middle class. It depends on how good you are at it and how many hives you have. Like others have said, it would not be a high paying job.
I'm only a hobbyist for now. What race of bees do you have in Iran? Is your area near the coast or closer to the mountains?
Thanks!

For those following this thread, google pictures of Ardabil, Iran. It is unbelievably beautiful!!!
It looks a lot like the Cumberland Mountains here in Tennessee!
