  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X201600214629
    Description:

    This study examines selected energy-related production, distribution, accidents and GHG emissions data over a ten year period (2005 to 2014).

    Release date: 2016-07-12

  • 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: 11-008-X201100111365
    Description:

    In society today, many Canadians are concerned about the environment and the scarcity of resources. Consequently, many individuals and governments are seeking ways to reduce or alter energy and water consumption patterns. This article uses data from the 2007 Households and the Environment Survey to examine the association between income, education, ownership, age of dwelling and years lived at the dwelling and the use of low-volume toilets; low-flow showerheads; compact fluorescent light bulbs; programmable thermostats; and appliances bought to save energy or water.

    Release date: 2010-12-07

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200900210890
    Description:

    Using data from Statistics Canada's Survey of Environmental Protection Expenditures and Annual Survey of Manufacturers and Logging, as well as data derived from Environment Canada's National Pollution Release Inventory, this study examines environmental expenditures in the manufacturing sector.

    Release date: 2009-06-18

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800410753
    Description:

    This article presents data on the use of light emitting diode (LED) holiday lighting using data from the 2007 Households and the Environment Survey.

    Release date: 2008-12-09

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800410750
    Description:

    This study focuses on six environmental behaviours at the household level: use of reduced volume toilets; use of low-flow showerheads; use of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL); recycling; composting; and lowering temperatures. In 2006, almost half of Canadian households were very active across this range of environmental 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: 16-002-X200800110541
    Description:

    Water is an essential input for crop and animal production. This article, based on the study "Estimation of Water Use in Canadian Agriculture in 2001", maps agricultural water use across the country.

    Release date: 2008-03-27

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200700110174
    Description:

    Access to recycling programs has improved since the mid-1990s and Canadian households are recycling larger quantities than ever before. The study also looks at factors affecting household recycling.

    Release date: 2007-07-13

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20050068759
    Description:

    Zero tillage is a relatively recent innovation on Canadadian farms however, it may not always be suitable for all crop and soil conditions. Zero till practices matched appropriately to crop and field conditions have the potential to reduce agriculture's impacts on the environment and lower energy and labour costs. The main sources of data are from Statistics Canada's 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) and the 2001 Census of Agriculture.

    Release date: 2005-11-21

  • 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.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20030096514
    Description:

    Over the last few years, the rapid expansion of large livestock operations has fuelled heated debates in many rural communities across Canada. Proposals for new hog operations, among others, have encountered vocal opposition from neighbours and residents in the community. Promoters defended the economic value of their project claiming that good farming practices and improved technology minimizes the potential risk of nuisance and pollution. However, opponents raised concerns about the reduction of their quality of life in association with large livestock operations, especially hog farms. They fear being driven out of their homes by strong odours or worry about accidental contamination of ground water in surrounding areas, as in Walkerton, Ontario. Still others are upset by prospects of added truck traffic, dust and noise resulting from feed and livestock transportation.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20010035612
    Description:

    This article gives a "snapshot" of where the larger concentrations of livestock were in May 1996. This information would be useful to planners, investors, non-governmental organizations, rural communities, and governments. This could help them decide where to expand livestock production without putting the environment at risk.
