Wasauksing First Nation is located on the eastern shore of Georgian Bay in Lake Huron, approximately 5 km off highway 69 and 3 kilometres southwest of Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada. Parry Island is the second largest island on Lake Huron with of a land base of 7,874 hectares (19,457 acres). The Anishinabe/Potawatomi community has approximately 1,200 community members with approximately 400 members living on-reserve.
First Nations have been making maple syrup since time immemorial and in the 16th century First Nations shared the maple syrup making process with Europeans. Maple syrup making is also community tradition in Wasauksing and the community has recently revived the community tradition of holding an annual Maplefest event/celebration to honour the Sugar Moon where everyone is welcome.
Wasauksing First Nation has been operating a not-for-profit sugar bush on and off since the late 1970’s through the economic development department. In recent years, Wasauksing Maple Products has focused on producing a high quality product for the area market in anticipation of moving towards a for-profit business model. As per the vision of the community members of Wasauksing, we look forward to developing the business into a for-profit venture that is renowned for its quality maple products throughout Canada and the world. Please watch for updates and join us on this journey over the next two years.
