  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X201300011875
    Description:

    The article "Measuring ecosystem goods and services in Canada" presents preliminary results achieved through a two-year interdepartmental project to develop experimental ecosystem accounts and the required statistical infrastructure. It provides an overview of ecosystem accounting and valuation and presents several measures of the quantity and quality of ecosystems and ecosystem goods and services (EGS). These measures focus on land cover, human landscape modification, ecosystem potential of the boreal forest, biomass extraction, marine and coastal EGS, and wetland EGS. The report also includes a case study on the Thousand Islands National Park exploring monetary valuation of EGS and concludes with a research agenda for future work on this topic.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X201100411601
    Description:

    This study looks at use and disposal of compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) in 2009, using data from the Households and the Environment Survey.

    Release date: 2011-12-08

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X201100111421
    Description:

    Operation and maintenance (O&M) costs associated with the acquisition and treatment of water will vary by treatment technology, annual production volumes and the type of source water processed. This study analyzes the data collected by the 2007 Survey of Drinking Water Plants to illustrate how O&M costs vary by these factors.

    Release date: 2011-03-23

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X201000411372
    Description:

    Potable water of sufficient quality and in adequate quantities is fundamental to human health and the economy. This article examines temporal and geographic variations in drinking water production volumes.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X201000011295
    Description:

    This analytical article "Freshwater Supply and Demand in Canada", provides information on Canada's freshwater supply as well as the demands placed on it. New research done within Statistics Canada is complimented by information from other sources, including other federal government departments, international bodies and scientific journals.

    Section 1 of this article compares Canada's renewable water resources to those of other countries, introduces key highlights and presents a short water primer. Section 2 quantifies Canada's renewable water resources (annual water yield), shows how water yield has changed from 1971 to 2004, and presents graphs of water yield by month for four regions of the country. Section 3 quantifies economic and residential water use in Canada and concludes with an analysis of the relationship between supply and demand. A glossary of terms used in the publication is available in Section 4.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X201000111134
    Description:

    Settlements are important hubs for residential, commercial and industrial activity, however, the size, structure and form of settlements over time can have a variety of social, economic and environmental implications. Statistics Canada has developed a new concept and dataset to delineate or map boundaries for Canada's settlements. This article presents some of the early geographic results of this project.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X200900010878
    Description:

    The feature article, Food in Canada, begins with a brief historical perspective on fishing and farming in Canada and moves on to explore the impact of the food system on the economy, environment and society. It illustrates how the contribution of the food system to gross domestic product and employment has shifted over the past forty years, and investigates the impact of primary food production on land, water, air and climate. The article concludes with a characterization of what is on the Canadian table, and the greenhouse gas emissions and energy-use associated with household food purchases.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800310684
    Description:

    Turning down the temperature by just a few degrees at night is one way Canadians can reduce their home heating expenses while also reducing their impact on the environment. Using data from the 2006 Households and the Environment survey, this study examines home heating practices and temperature controlling behaviours.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X200700010542
    Description:

    The article "Climate Change in Canada" begins with an explanation of the science necessary to explore this topic. It continues to examine greenhouse gas emissions in Canada, investigating the driving forces behind those emissions and how those forces may have changed over time. It illustrates some of the impacts of climate change on our land, wildlife and peoples. The article concludes with a presentation of the activities that Canadians, industry and governments are undertaking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the changing climate, and also profiles some promising areas for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the future.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20050037842
    Description:

    For the purposes of this study, eight environmental management systems (EMSs) were considered: whole farm environmental plan; manure management plan; fertilizer management plan; pesticide management plan; water management plan; wildlife conservation plan; grazing management plan, and nutrient management plan.

    The information on the use of farm environmental plans was obtained from the Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) conducted in 2001 by Statistics Canada and sponsored in part by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
