I tried to make an appointment with a forest engineer, but I can’t find one that can come before the deadline. What should I do?
Get an appointment with a forest engineer and ask him or her to provide you with written confirmation of the appointment. Include the written confirmation with your application.
When will we know who will be receiving a quota?
For more information, see the timetable on the New Quotas page.
How many taps can I get?
Young entrepreneurs projects are eligible for a maximum of 25,000 taps.
Will I lose my quota if my sugar bush isn’t operational by 2018?
Yes. Quotas that aren’t used within two years of being issued will be reclaimed by the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers. We need these new taps now.
Is the number of pounds per tap the same for the three components (young entrepreneurs, startup, and expansion)?
Yes. The quota per tap is 2.5 lbs, regardless of the component.
