  • 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-X201200111640
    Description:

    This article examines the average area covered by snow (snow cover extent) nationally for the 39 year period from 1972 to 2010 and is the fifth in an ongoing series of short analytical articles featuring climate related data. This and future articles in the series are the product of ongoing collaboration among Statistics Canada, Environment Canada and Natural Resources Canada.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X201000411372
    Description:

    Potable water of sufficient quality and in adequate quantities is fundamental to human health and the economy. This article examines temporal and geographic variations in drinking water production volumes.

    Release date: 2010-12-08

  • 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.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X201000111134
    Description:

    Settlements are important hubs for residential, commercial and industrial activity, however, the size, structure and form of settlements over time can have a variety of social, economic and environmental implications. Statistics Canada has developed a new concept and dataset to delineate or map boundaries for Canada's settlements. This article presents some of the early geographic results of this project.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200900210889
    Description:

    Canada's renewable water resources are mostly the result of rain and melted snow that flow over the ground, eventually reaching our rivers and lakes. This article describes the results of a new methodology producing consistent national estimates of Canada's total annual average water yield from 1971 to 2000.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200700210336
    Description:

    Managing lawns and gardens is a popular activity that takes on different forms across Canada. Statistics from the Households and the Environment Survey show that regional differences create a diversity of lawn and garden practices. Specifically, this study looks at how the application of pesticides and fertilizers and the use of outdoor water conservation devices vary.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200700110177
    Description:

    Canada's population doubled between 1956 and 2006. Human population growth is an important factor in determining society's influence on the environment. One example of our growing population's influence on the environment is illustrated vis-à-vis the increasing number of motor vehicles registered over time.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X20020006407
    Description:

    For millennia, changes in the earth's atmosphere were the result of natural forces. Over the past century, however, these changes have escalated as a result of human activities-mainly unprecedented growth in global population and consumption of natural resources to increase industrial production-that degrade and destroy the forests and other vital ecosystems essential to atmospheric processes. Such human activities produce large quantities of substances that are released in the air, where over time they can overload natural processes and eventually reach harmful levels. The result is poor air quality in urban and rural areas around the world.

    This article addresses the following questions: What is the condition of our outdoor and indoor air? What effects does air quality have on our health and our environment? And what are governments and businesses doing to address air quality concerns?

  • Table: 68-513-X19970013572
    Description:

    The inspiration and content of this volume owe much to Larry Kotlikoff, Alan Auerbach and their collaborators for their pioneering work in the development of Generational Accounting. These papers include the latest efforts to apply their accounting framework to Canada as well as numerous extensions of parallel thinking to a far broader range of legacies. Both of these lines of research make use of Statistics Canada's unmatched sources of data and analytical capacities, so the sponsorship and content of this book make a natural match.
