The Ontario Maple Syrup Producers’ Association (OMSPA) is a producer based organization formed in 1966 to represent maple syrup producers across the province. As a producer organization we are committed to promoting the production of high quality maple products using the best available management practices. We represent a long history of sugar making in the province and are proud to carry on with the traditions associated with one of nature’s greatest natural sweeteners – the making of maple syrup when the sap begins to flow. OMSPA is the official voice of sugar makers in Ontario. We currently represent over 500 “sugar makers” who are committed to producing a high quality product for consumers to enjoy. Our members are involved with a wide range of activities organized at the provincial level or through one of our 11 local chapters located across the maple producing areas of the province. We also work closely with other organizations and levels of government to promote and protect the maple industry in Ontario. OMSPA is an active member of the International Maple Syrup Institute and the North American Maple Syrup Council.
Add your voice to over 450 dedicated Ontario maple syrup producers in lobbying the government and agencies on issues that matter to maple syrup producers. Whether you have 10 taps or 10,000 taps the Ontario Maple Syrup Producers’ Association is an organization that can help you with your sugarmaking operation. OMSPA members are located throughout the province and they range from sophisticated business operations to hobby producers.
Watch for our annual Information Days hosted throughout province. OMSPA Information Days are held each fall/winter in 11 different locations across Ontario. Whether you are a hobbyist or a full time maple syrup producer, this is your opportunity to learn what’s new in maple and to network with other avid producers who love to talk maple. There are expert speakers, maple equipment suppliers and maple producer discussion panels. You do not need to be a member to attend the meetings but membership will guarantee that you get the latest in all things maple. Attend a meeting near you or attend several! There are different speakers and topics at each meeting.
