Maple products, 2022

Released: 2022-12-14

Production of maple products

17.4 million gallons


54.0% increase

(annual change)

Canadian maple producers harvested a record-high 17.4 million gallons of maple syrup in 2022, a 53.8% rise from 2021. Production was up across all maple-producing provinces largely because of favourable weather conditions and continued expansions in the industry. Higher yields in 2022 followed the previous year's lower production brought on by a short maple season attributable to warm spring temperatures in 2021.

In 2022, the total production of maple syrup in Quebec was 15.9 million gallons, a 59.1% increase from 2021 and a record-high harvest for Canada's top maple-producing province. Excellent spring conditions contributed to an increased yield. This rise in production allowed the Federation of Quebec maple syrup producers to replenish its strategic reserve, which was accessed in 2021 to meet domestic and export demand for the sweetener. Quebec accounts for 90% of Canada's national production.

New Brunswick producers reported a maple harvest of 810.9 thousand gallons, a 3.2% increase from 2021. This rise is attributable to new tappings across the province and the growing New Brunswick maple industry. In Ontario, historic high yields in northern parts of the province contributed to a 27.7% rise in production to 589.8 thousand gallons.

Canadian producers exported 8.5 million gallons of maple products in the first three quarters of 2022, a 3.4% decrease from the record-high exports for the same period in 2021.
