Sugar Shack in Quebec City

Sugar Shack in Quebec City

Sugar shacks are rare in urban areas but the one in the Bois-de-Coulonge Park has attracted thousands of visitors for the past ten years. Behind the popularity of this ancient sugar shack formerly owned by Lieutenant-Governor hides a collection of essential funds for the community school, which welcomes handicapped students from many regions.

Entrepreneur and former teacher Léandre Cloutier is the one who convinced the Quebec Capital School Borad (CCNQ) to resurrect the sugar shack built in the 40’s and abandoned in 1966, when the Lieutenant-Governor’s villa went up in flames. For the tenth spring, Mr. Cloutier collects the maple water from the park, which is only a small percentage of the production, and the dozen volunteers who distribute the maple taffy to the hundreds of curious people on Grande-Allée.
