    Description:

    Many towns that started as agricultural trading centres have become successful and growing cities. Part of their original comparative advantage was their proximity to productive and fertile agricultural land. Now their continuing expansion is consuming this high-quality agricultural land. The purpose of this paper is to explore the amount of dependable agricultural land that has been lost to urbanisation.

  • Articles and reports: 21-006-X2000007
    Description:

    The rural employment picture is changing quickly in Canada. As in most western nations, primary industries in Canada are losing jobs. This provides a challenge to national, provincial and local decision-makers to find new goods and services to export in order to help stabilise the employment levels in communities that are dependent upon primary sector employment. The purpose of this bulletin is to investigate the changing structure of primary sector employment in rural Canada in the 1980s and the 1990s. Specifically, we look at employment in the agricultural industry and employment in all other primary industries (i.e. fishing, logging and forestry, mining and oil and natural gas extraction, and hunting and trapping).

    The most widely discussed agricultural topic in recent years is the risks and opportunities presented by food products obtained through biotechnology, especially those derived from genetically modified seeds (GMS). According to the June 2000 survey on field crops, 16% of all soybean acreage in Quebec, and 18% of that in Ontario, was planted with genetically modified seeds. The percentage of corn in both provinces was 27%. Most farms using GMS corn and soybeans are located in Ontario and Quebec where the production of both of these crops is concentrated.
