Production Overview Back

Quebec is home to some 7,400 maple syrup businesses spread out across a territory spanning approximately 800 km from east to west.

On the south shore of the St. Lawrence, there are producers as far east as La Pointe-de-la-Gaspésie.

On the north shore, the most easterly producers are in Baie Saint-Paul, along with a few in the Saguenay region.

Normally, the sugar season starts in southwestern Quebec in late February/early March and ends in the east in late April/early May.
