  • Articles and reports: 11-621-M2006050
    Description:

    This study highlights research and development (R&D) efforts made by Canadian firms from 1993 to 2003 in new energy technologies. By focusing on alternative energy R&D, it provides a first look at business spending in developing the technologies that will permit cleaner and renewable energy sources in the future.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X20060009515
    Description:

    Our vast transportation system - roads, railways, airports, ports and vehicles - provides people and businesses with services that are fundamental to our standard of living and well-being.

    At the same time, transportation is a concern to Canadians from an environmental perspective. From greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution from burning fossil fuels to the fragmentation of wildlife habitat by transportation infrastructure, transportation activities impact the environment locally and globally.

    This article examines transportation activity in Canada and its environmental impacts - and the efforts of governments, businesses and citizens to help mitigate them - by painting a statistical portrait of Transportation in Canada.

  • Technical products: 16-505-G
    Description:

    Part of Statistics Canada's Econnections: linking the environment and the economy statistical series, this publication describes in detail the conceptual frameworks, data sources and empirical methods used to compile the Canadian System of Environmental and Resource Accounts (CSERA). Designed to be compatible with the accounting frameworks of the System of National Accounts, the CSERA allows users to easily analyze the linkages between economic activity and the environment in terms of material and energy flows, environmental expenditures and natural resource stocks. This publication will be of interest to researchers in both the economic and environmental fields who want to familiarize themselves with the accounting concepts of the CSERA. It is a companion volume to Environment-economy indicators and detailed statistics (catalogue no. 16-200-XKE), another product in the Econnections series.

  • Articles and reports: 11-008-X20050049126
    Description:

    Using the Survey of Household Facilities and Equipment and the Survey of Household Spending, this article shows that, since the 1940s, Canadians have rapidly adopted new energy sources for household heating. It then shows how these important changes have affected greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the residential sector in recent decades.

    Description:

    The objective of this study was to estimate and map livestock manure production by the environmental geography unit known as the Sub-Sub-Drainage Area (SSDA) in 2001 and to calculate the change in manure production over the 1981-2001 period.
