Ontario Craft Cider Association (OCCA)

Industry Body of Craft Cider Producers in Ontario

The Economic Impact of Cider in Ontario (2016)

Study Background

The Ontario Craft Cider Association (OCCA), a not-for-profit organization that represents craft cider producers across Ontario, commissioned MNP LLP (MNP) to carry out an economic impact assessment of the Ontario craft cider industry.

In preparing this report, MNP carried out the following activities:

• Gathered data and statistics relevant to the Ontario craft cider industry, through publicly available sources such as Statistics Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs(OMAFRA).
• Conducted a survey of OCCA members to gather information about their operations as well as the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats facing the Ontario craft cider industry.
• Estimated the economic impacts of the Ontario craft cider industry using an input-output methodology with multipliers endorsed by Statistics Canada.

Industry Profile

An Ontario craft cidery, as defined by the OCCA, is a small, independent and traditional cidery that manufactures all of its cider in a licensed facility in Ontario. There are approximately 43 cider producers located throughout the province of Ontario, of which 25 are considered to be craft cider producers as defined by the OCCA. Many craft cider producers are located in rural communities, with 75 percent of craft cider producers that responded to MNP’s survey reporting operating in a rural region.
