Plaque Text

Known and valued by Aboriginal peoples long before the arrival of European settlers, products from sugar maple trees have a rich history in Canada. Their production and trade have played an important role in the economy of the Maple Belt, notably by providing supplementary income that helped ensure the survival of many family farms. After breaking into the international market in 1929, Canada became the world's leading maple products producer and exporter. With the tradition of sugaring-off in the spring, maple syrup symbolizes the end of winter and is associated with Canada's national identity and way of life at home and abroad.

This plaque was unveiled on October 17, 2009, one of three locations chosen to honour maple products as a National Historic Event. The other plaques can be found in Plessisville and Saint-Hilaire, Quebec. -Wayne
