  • Table: 21-005-X
    Description:

    This series of 11 bulletins produced jointly by Statistics Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada offers readers an analytical and illustrative presentation of farm financial data. Data from Revenue Canada taxation of unincorporated and incorporated farms and other agricultural surveys provide the statistical basis for these bulletins. Eight of these bulletins feature a specific farm type providing analysis on such key variables as revenues and expenses, net operating income and net operating margins. Physical characteristics such as crop areas and livestock inventory numbers as well as some distributional data are presented. The first bulletin of this series provides an overview of all farm types combined. The two remaining bulletins present sources and levels of off-farm income for farm operators and farm families for selected farm types. Depending on the variables, the discussion is presented by province or by revenue class. Comparisons of financial performance are also made for selected variables. Tables and graphs support the analytical texts.

  • Articles and reports: 21-021-M2007001
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    The analysis contained in this article is based on results from the 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS). It presents information on various practices used to manage water on Canadian farms. Practices surveyed are divided in two groupings: those used to protect natural sources of water - maintaining vegetation on areas adjacent to natural sources of water, management of grazing livestock, conservation measures for natural wetland areas, and disposal of milkhouse wash water and toxic wastes; and those related to the use of water for farming and household activities types of irrigation systems and testing of domestic water.

    Results show that farm practices impacting water quality and quantity are significantly used by Canadian farmers. Higher adoption rates of environmental measures could likely be achieved to reduce agriculture's environmental footprint. These results can assist governments, farmers and non-governmental organizations in targeting actions and in the promotion and development of new farm environmental programs and practices.
