  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X201600014361
    Description:

    The article "The changing landscape of Canadian metropolitan areas" provides an analysis of land cover and land use change in Canada's largest cities. It focuses on the change in built-up area, arable land and natural and semi-natural land in and around CMAs from 1971 to 2011. The report includes CMA-specific geographical profiles that include tables, charts and maps as well as links to a wealth of other relevant information.

    The June 2016 update includes the addition of spatial data files (ArcGIS®, file extension: .shp) for each CMA that can be downloaded from the HTML version of the publication.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X201400014117
    Description:

    The 2014 article “Agriculture in Canada” gathers together a variety of statistics describing agriculture from the perspective of ecosystem goods and services.

    The article addresses the ecological infrastructure supporting agricultural activity (Section 2), ecosystem goods and services from agriculture (Section 3), the main beneficiaries of these goods and services (Section 4) and the environmental impacts and management activities associated with agriculture (Section 5). Section 6 provides an example to illustrate how agricultural information can be integrated into a system of environmental accounts that follow international guidelines being developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Section 7 concludes with a short listing of areas requiring further research.

  • 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-X201100411600
    Description:

    Although the location of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is not important as far as their contribution to global warming is concerned, it can be useful to know how final domestic expenditures on products and services in Canada cause emissions in other countries and conversely, how final expenditures elsewhere cause emissions in Canada. This article uses a novel multi-regional input-output (MRIO) model to trace the connections between domestic final expenditures on goods and services in one country and the resulting GHG emissions in another.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800410749
    Description:

    Households contribute to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada both directly and indirectly. Direct emissions occur through the use of motor fuel and residential fuel, while indirect emissions result from the production of goods and services purchased by households. This article examines households' direct and indirect GHG emissions from 1990 to 2004.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800310686
    Description:

    Canadians use large amounts of water every day. Household fixtures such as low-flow shower heads and reduced volume toilets allow households to conserve water and reduce utility bills. The study uses data from the 1994 and 2006 Households and the Environment Surveys, to examine use of these water-saving fixtures.

  • Articles and reports: 11-010-X20050057894
    Description:

    The share of resources in our value-added exports is greater than in gross exports, because they use fewer imported inputs than manufactured goods.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20040036776
    Description:

    In 2001, the total value of certain farm investments for environmental protection was $170.9 million, an average of $1,091 per farm. These investments accounted for a very small proportion of total investments by Canadian farmers.

    In some cases, there are substantial differences in environmental protection investments between provinces and between farm types. Farms in Quebec, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia spend more on environmental protection, as do hog, dairy and poultry farms.

    The data in this article are from the Farm Financial Survey (FFS). The data were collected by telephone interview from a sample of 18,000 farms with a gross farm income of $10,000 or more. The purpose of the survey is to collect financial data, chiefly on assets, debt, revenues, expenses and investments.

    In 2002, for the first time, the survey collected data on the amount of money invested in 2001 in certain environmental protection improvements: manure storage systems; pesticide, chemical or fuel storage systems; and shelterbelts, windbreaks, buffer strips or fences for waterway protection.
