When spring arrives, almost every Quebecer thinks about the sugar shack season. The little ones think of it for the amount of maple sugar they will have the right to eat that day, the adults for the delicious food and the good times with the family and friends. We gathered here several sugar shacks in Montreal and its surroundings. Psst, you have the permission to try more than one, considering that you can enjoy it only once a year.
