  • Journals and periodicals: 16-508-X
    Description:

    Environment fact sheets will include short, focused, single-theme analysis on key issues within the changing environment with regards to all Canadians. Over the course of the series, analysis will include topics on: air and climate, pollution and waste, environmental protection and quality, and natural resources.

    Release date: 2019-02-11

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 16-509-X
    Description:

    The Methodological Guide: Canadian System of Environmental-Economic Accounting provides readers with information on environmental-economic accounts at Statistics Canada. It provides links to produced data and publications and describes the concepts, sources, and methods used to compile them. Topics include ecosystem accounting, asset accounts (natural resources in physical and monetary terms), physical flow accounts (energy and water use, and waste and greenhouse gas emissions), environmental activity statistics (expenditures on environmental protection), and the applications and extensions of those accounts (attribution of physical flows to final demand and intensity measures).

    This user's guide has been developed by the Environmental Statistics Program to facilitate access to environmental-economic accounting information throughout Statistics Canada and to explain its linkage with international standards, the United Nations System of Environmental-Economic Accounting. This guide is continually being updated to maintain its relevance.

  • Journals and periodicals: 57-602-G
    Description:

    The objective of this document is to present a proposed Statistical Framework for Energy in Canada, which will help guide data providers and users in the development of a strategic plan for addressing priority elements of the proposed framework.

    The framework is intended to apply to energy statistics in Canada in general, with application across a broad range of stakeholders involved in the collection, dissemination and use of energy statistics, including provincial and territorial administrative and statistical agencies.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 16-257-X
    Description:

    Environment Accounts and Statistics Division is Statistics Canada's focal point for the collection, analysis and dissemination of environmental information. This reference guide briefly describes the division's programs, as well as all publications and electronic products offered on a quarterly, annual, biennial and occasional basis.

  • Journals and periodicals: 11-526-X
    Description:

    Statistics Canada periodically conducts the Household and the Environment Survey to measure household actions that have, or are perceived to have, positive or negative impacts on the environment. The survey provides baseline information to use in measuring progress towards sound environmental practices at the household level. The subjects examined include consumption and conservation of energy, consumption and conservation of water, indoor environment, use of pesticides and fertilizers, outdoor air quality and consumer decisions.

  • Journals and periodicals: 16-251-X
    Description:

    This annual report presents environmental indicators for water quality, air quality, and greenhouse gas emissions. The water quality indicator documents the distribution of water quality at selected sites across Canada. The air quality indicator reports national and regional trends in ground-level ozone, a key component of smog, and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). The greenhouse gas indicator describes the trend in emissions and the contribution to the trend by energy production, energy consumption and other factors. The socio-economic context provides links to economic performance and social progress. The indicators are intended to assist those in government responsible for developing policy and measuring performance, while also helping individual Canadians who want to know more about the trends in their environment.

    The indicator reports from 2005 to 2007 can be found below. All later indicator reports can be found on Environment Canada's site: www.ec.gc.ca/indicateurs-indicators/.

  • Articles and reports: 12-001-X20020026418
    Description:

    National statistical offices are often called upon to produce statistics for small geographic areas, in addition to their primary responsibility for measuring the condition of the country as a whole and its major subdivisions. This task presents challenges that are different from those faced in statistical programs aiming primarily at national or provincial statistics. This paper examines these challenges and identifies strategies and approaches for the development of programs of small area statistics. The important foundation of a census of population, as well as the primary role of a consistent geographic infrastructure, are emphasized. Potential sources and methods for the production of small area data in the social, economic and environmental fields are examined. Some organizational and dissemination issues are also discussed.

  • Table: 16F0007X
    Description:

    The federal government's Canadian Environmental Industry Strategy consists of a number of initiatives to achieve a cleaner environment and a stronger environmental industry. Statistics Canada received funding from Industry Canada, under Initiative 8 of the strategy, to develop a national statistical database on the environment industry. Statistics Canada began a program consisting of new surveys, modifications to existing surveys and integration of statistics from various components of its economic statistics framework.

    The environment "industry" does not exist as an explicit element in any existing classification. This is not surprising, because the environment industry consists of business involved in activities that span a number of different industries in the Standard Industrial Classification. Attempts had been made to identify environmental goods and services in existing classifications, but without appreciable success. It was necessary to develop new ways and new tools to obtain the information. These methods are outlined.

    A major objective of the approach adopted by Statistics Canada is to provide sufficient detail to permit comparability of the results with other countries and to satisfy a variety of data needs.
