  • Articles and reports: 11F0027M2004026
    Description:

    This paper develops a production framework that allows for self-supplied water intake, an unpriced 'natural' input. The framework is then exploited to estimate the corresponding water shadow prices and to assess the extent to which water impacts on the multifactor productivity performance of the Canadian business sector's industries.

  • Index and guides: 96-328-M2004006

  • Technical products: 16-001-M2004001
    Description:

    The collection of firms producing environmental goods and delivering environmental services constitutes the 'environment industry.' This industry has grown significantly in the past 20 years and stands to continue this development in the future as emerging issues such as the level of greenhouse gas emissions are addressed.

    An important aspect in the evaluation of the industry's performance is in the area of job creation and employment generation. Related to the challenges involved in classifying firms to the environment industry is the issue of identifying the employees who work in environment-related activities. Currently, the published data on employment include only the total employment of those businesses producing environmental goods and services, i.e., employees who worked in the production/provision of goods and services that have both environmental and non-environmental applications.

  • 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.

    This article profiles the diamond mining industry in Canada, with a special emphasis on the Northwest Territories (NWT). This new industry is contributing substantially to growth in gross domestic product, investment, international trade and government revenues. It also has an affect on employment, since jobs within this industry tend to pay high salaries. New diamond mines are under development and diamond exploration is expanding in Nunavut, Ontario and other provinces.
