  • 3. Food in Canada Archived
    Articles and reports: 16-201-X200900010878
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The feature article, Food in Canada, begins with a brief historical perspective on fishing and farming in Canada and moves on to explore the impact of the food system on the economy, environment and society. It illustrates how the contribution of the food system to gross domestic product and employment has shifted over the past forty years, and investigates the impact of primary food production on land, water, air and climate. The article concludes with a characterization of what is on the Canadian table, and the greenhouse gas emissions and energy-use associated with household food purchases.

    Description:

    This paper looks into Canadian innovative biotechnology firms' access to financing capital. Results show that over 70% of biotech firms that attempted to raise financing capital were successful. Funds were primarily sought for R&D activities and came primarily from Canadian venture capitalists. Harsher market conditions were the main reasons put forward by investors to limit or reject biotechnology firms' funding requests.

  • Articles and reports: 88F0006X2005009
    Description:

    The main indicators of biotechnology activities in Canada are presented in this article. The data are from the 2003 Biotechnology Use and Development Survey. Within the last few years, except for the number of employees with biotechnology-related responsibilities that remained stable, an increase in all the indicators was noticed. For example, the number of innovative firms involved in biotechnology activities rose from 375 in 2001 to 490 in 2003 and biotechnology revenues rose from $3.6 billion to $3.8 billion between 2001 and 2003. Also, biotechnology R&D spending increased by 11% between 2001 and 2003 and the amount of capital raised for biotechnology was up 73% during this period.

  • Table: 23-501-X
    Description:

    Based on feed coefficients, this study estimates the per animal and total provincial livestock feed requirements for grain, pasture, and harvested roughages by the various species. This release applies the coefficients to the current livestock inventories and balance sheet information for 1999, 2000 and 2001 to estimate the total tonnage consumed. It reflects any revisions made to the livestock numbers as a result of the 2001 Census of Agriculture.

    Description:

    Spin-off firms made up over 34% of the core group of firms from the 1999 biotechnology survey. They also made up over 112 of the 270 small (under 50 employees) size firms, by far the largest group of core biotechnology, and half of the human health related firms, the largest sector of biotechnology firms. Central to this paper is the question: What are the general characteristics of this sub-group of core biotechnology firms?

    Description:

    The development of aquaculture parallels the transition that occured in agriculture several thousand years ago. Agriculture appeared when hunters and gatherers began to raise livestock and plant crops to produce food. The parallel transition with aquatic species is becoming an important activity in the Canadian economy. As a result of new initiatives, Statistics Canada is now able to provide economic data for the developing industry of aquaculture.
