Building Canada One Maple Tree at a Time

We’ve known all along that our maple producers have something special to offer, and the nation knows, too! Wheelers Pancake House and Sugar Camp near McDonald’s Corners is home to a Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada plaque commemorating the significance of maple production in Canada’s history, economy and tourism industry. Hailed the Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario, Lanark County has a number of excellent maple producers with interesting facilities for visitors. Wheelers was chosen as the Ontario location for the plaque because it offers a maple museum that is open year round and features artifacts tracing the evolution of syrup production from the Aboriginal people through settlement history. The 730-acre forest has been used for maple syrup production since at least 1868. Come and see for yourself how maple syrup is part of our national identity.
