Bear Island Maple Syrup Producers and Wild Rice Harvesters Association

Miigwech to everyone’s help and assistance, from the Doreen Potts Health Clinic, the staff at the Temagami First Nation band office, the chiefs and councillors, the Laura Mckenzie School, teachers, staff, students and the Library, the Bear Island Blast news.

Also, many thanks to the Enrichment Funds committee, the youth programs at the youth building and any other individual(s) who helped with hauling fire wood, clearing and packing bush trails and boiling.

Thanks for everyone’s much needed help, out in the bush and in the offices with paper work.


2015 and 2016 were good spring seasons, with proper weather for maple sugaring lasting up to 5 weeks long here.


Miigwech, nyaweh, wadoh.
