For maple syrup, the metric net quantity must be shown in units of volume (mL, L) as the product is a liquid. For maple products other than maple syrup, the metric net quantity must be shown in units of weight (g, kg). Although Canadian (previously named "Imperial") units of measure are not required on labels, they are permitted to be used in addition to the required metric units, subject to certain specifications (see Canadian Units of Measure for details) [10(5), 12(1)d, 19(1)(e), Schedule IV, Schedule V, MPR; 10(a), CPLA; 14(2), 22(1), 22(3), CPLR] for details.
