alumni UBC Montréal: Cabane à sucre

What sweetens a Canadian winter better than a cabane à sucre? That’s why, for a second year, we’re gathering for maple-syrup food and fun. This time, we’re venturing out to the Sucrerie de la Montagne in Rigaud, Québéc (near the Ontario border).

Join our alumni UBC Global Alumni Ambassadors from Montréal, Lori Akiyama (Dip’09, Marketing/Sales Management) and Emily Ranger-LePage (BA’13), for an authentic sugar shack meal and traditional entertainment in a countryside log cabin. After our all-you-can-eat lunch, discover how maple sap is made into syrup, browse in the general store, and mingle with fellow alumni (all alumni will receive a free gift from alumni UBC).
