Wheelers National Historic Plaque Recognizing Maple
Maple is an essential part of our past, present, and future and the Government of Canada has taken note of that. In 2009 the Historical Sites and Monuments Board of Canada designated Maple Syrup as a Culturally Significant Historical Event in Canada. Wheelers Maple Heritage Museum is home to one of three bronze plaques in Canada, recognizing this designation. The others are in Plessisville and Saint-Hilaire, Quebec.
On October 17, 2009 local MP Scott Reid and other officials along with the Wheeler Family unveiled a bronze plaque commemorating Maple Products as a Culturally Significant Heritage Event in Canada.
