Note(s):
Data from the physical flow accounts on greenhouse gas emissions differ from those in Environment and Climate Change Canada's National Inventory Report on Greenhouse Gas Sources and Sinks because of differences in the methodology used to produce them. See the physical flow accounts survey page (5115) for more information.
