This edition of Canadian Agriculture at a Glance aims to open the barn doors of Canadian agriculture to non-farming Canadians by providing a smart, snappy, intriguing, informative and unbiased look at the state of agriculture in the country.

The 2006 Census of Agriculture—the basis for the articles—found fewer than 1% of Canadians are farm operators. Yet, all Canadians participate in the agri-food sector when they go grocery shopping and make food choices.

Statistics Canada's mandate is to provide information to Canadians so they can make sound, fact-based decisions—whether on the farm or in the grocery aisle. Its wealth of objective data on the agriculture sector can help you make your own choices.
