For the purposes of this information, "maple products" include both: pure maple syrup and pure maple products other than maple syrup (for example: maple sugar, soft maple sugar, maple butter and maple taffy).

The labelling requirements of the Maple Products Regulations (MPR) that are summarized in this document apply to maple products produced in federally registered establishments, as well as to imported maple products. When sold in Canada, these maple products are also subject to the labelling requirements under the Food and Drugs Act (FDA) and the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act (CPLA) .

Other products, such as maple products destined for intraprovincial trade and foods containing maple but not exclusively made of maple products, are subject to the labelling requirements under the Food and Drugs Act and the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act. These are summarized in the core labelling, claims and statements, and food-specific labelling requirement pages of the Industry Labelling Tool. Provincial regulations may also apply to products sold within that province.

The requirements detailed in the following sections are specific to maple products. They are in addition to the core labelling and other requirements that apply to all prepackaged foods.
