Third Largest Producer in the World

Springtime in New Brunswick is maple syrup time. As the days grow warmer and the maple trees convert their stored starch to sugar, the sweet sap starts to flow and syrup producers across the province head to the sugar bush for the sweetest harvest in the forest. Here on Canada's Atlantic coast, our climate, soil and forest combine to create a uniquely flavourful maple sap that gives New Brunswick maple syrup a taste that's renowned around the world. The New Brunswick Maple Syrup Association represents a well established industry that produces 1.8 million kilograms of syrup every year which is sold here and on the global stage. Maple syrup... in everyone's taste and a product you're sure to enjoy!

The association offers information, training, and representation services. Further- more, the NBMSA collaborates with various organizations towards the enrichment of the ever-growing maple industry.

Did you know?

An Aboriginal legend relates that Nokomis, Mother Earth, was the first to collect a wonderful syrup that was dripping from the maple trees.

As her grandson, Manabush, did not want humans to get lazy by easily collecting this treasure without putting in too much effort, he decided to pour a large container full of water in maples to dilute the syrup.

Ever since, we must tap the trees, stoke large fires to boil the sap, and work very hard to produce precious maple products.
