The Tisdale Economic Development and Tourism Committee and Tisdale and District Chamber of Commerce decided that the development of the Bee Theme for Tisdale would help make Tisdale a Tourism Destination. The Bee Statue was the first part of the development. A common bee logo has been adopted to appear on various letterhead in Tisdale, promotional materials, and souvenirs.
Tisdale is the Honey Capital of Saskatchewan, producing 10% of Canada's honey.
TISDALE letters in concrete and paving stones are underneath the Bee Statue.
Construction costs $4,700
