The background experience of Beth Candlish is mainly agricultural, through education, practical farming, research and information retrieval. As a Commissioner and Research Scientist at the Canadian Grain Commission, an information researcher with the Canada Grains Council, and a Research Associate at the University of Manitoba, I gained a variety of information retrieval expertise.
My formal education consists of a PhD from the University of Manitoba in Plant Biochemistry and Animal Nutrition, a M.Sc. in Plant Biochemistry from the same University. Macdonald College, McGill University, was where my formal agricultural education began with a B.Sc (Agr.) specializing in Animal Nutrition with a minor in Agricultural Economics.
Since 1978 I have been self-employed as Beth Candlish PhD, except for the years from late 1981 to early 1986 when I was a Commissioner at the Canadian Grain Commission. Spare time activities include involvement with the Liberal Party, flying a Cessna 172, photography and travelling to keep in touch with my family on Hornby Island, B.C., Victoria, B.C., Calgary, AB, and Peterborough, ON. In 2007 my son moved from Oakville to Kelowna, B.C. and I decided to move to Kelowna in 2009. I sold my condo in Calgary, bought one in Kelowna and moved the end of October.

For years I collected family tree information for the Candlish family. My father had a family tree done professionally in 1935, to which I had access. As a result of having this information and receiving requests via email from Candlish connections around the world, the information is being assembled at
- Candlish Family Tree
- Gardiner Family Tree
