The Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Québec (FPAQ)
Resolution #118 : The Fédération des producteurs acéricoles du Québec (FPAQ) (Official French version)
The restrictions imposed by the Fédération des producers acéricoles du Québec (FPAQ) on Québec’s maple syrup producers allowed Ontario, New Brunswick and New England to increase their market share. Furthermore, such a quota production system has no place in a true free market economy, as it increases the prices paid by consumers. Finally, the monopoly of the FPAQ is increasingly disputed among Québec’s maple syrup producers. That's why a government of the Conservative Party of Québec would abolish the FPAQ’s monopoly on the marketing of maple products in Québec, as well as price controls on maple syrup.
