The Official voice of sugar makers in Ontario
The Ontario Maple Syrup Producers’ Association( OMSPA) is a producer based organization, formed in 1966, to represent maple syrup producers across Ontario. We are committed to promoting the production of high quality maple syrup using the best available management practices; both in our operations and in the maple forest.

Our members are involved with a wide range of educational and information sharing activities, both at the provincial level or through one of our 11 local chapters located across the maple producing areas in Ontario.
