Taste the delights of maple in the Outaouais region and Ottawa
Maple syrup season usually begins from late winter to early spring, generally from late February to April. In the Gatineau-Ottawa region, we enjoy maple syrup delights in the various maple groves, sugar shacks and restaurants that use maple syrup in original ways in their dishes and desserts.
