Value of maple products

$517.5 million

2019

34.2% increase

(annual change)

The production of maple syrup, the quintessential Canadian sweetener, rose to its highest level on record in 2019.

Despite a cold, late spring in Eastern Canada, the maple harvest rose by one-third (+34.8%) from a year earlier to a record high 13.2 million gallons in 2019, on higher yields and more taps.

Quebec, which accounted for 91.1% of Canadian maple production in 2019, harvested 12.0 million gallons, up 35.0% from a year earlier. Production was also robust in the other maple-producing provinces of New Brunswick (+65.5% to 598.0 thousand gallons), Ontario (+8.1% to 502.3 thousand gallons) and Nova Scotia (+26.5% to 70.0 thousand gallons).

The total value of maple products rose by 34.2% year over year to $517.5 million in 2019. The increase was mostly attributable to higher production since prices remained relatively stable at $39.19 per gallon in 2019, down 17 cents from a year earlier.

Over the 24 month period from August 2017 to July 2019, maple products were exported to 72 different countries around the world, with 90.6% of the exports destined for the following six countries: the United States (61.9%), Germany (10.5%), Japan (5.5%), the United Kingdom (4.9%), Australia (4.4%) and France (3.5%). Over the same period, Canada exported, on average, $34.1 million worth of maple products per month.
