    Description:

    This paper presents a growth accounting framework in which subsoil mineral and energy resources are recognized as natural capital input into the production process. It is the first study of its kind in Canada. Firstly, the income attributable to subsoil resources, or resource rent, is estimated as a surplus value after all extraction costs and normal returns on produced capital have been accounted for. The value of a resource reserve is then estimated as the present value of the future resource rents generated from the efficient extraction of the reserve. Lastly, with extraction as the observed service flows of natural capital, multifactor productivity (MFP) growth and the other sources of economic growth can be reassessed by updating the income shares of all inputs, and then, by estimating the contribution to growth coming from changes in the value of natural capital input. This framework is then applied to the Canadian oil and gas extraction sector.

    Description:

    This document presents operating and capital expenditures made by primary and manufacturing industries in response to, or in anticipation of, environmental regulations and conventions. It also reports the use of environmental management processes and technologies including those used to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by Canadian businesses. The results are from the Survey of Environmental Protection Expenditures. The data contained in Environmental protection expenditures in the business sector help to fill important gaps in existing information on the demand side of the 'environment industry'. More specifically, it provides a measure of the cost to the industry of adopting pollution prevention and abatement technologies and other environmental protection practices. The document presents comparisons of current year spending with previous years' expenditures.

    Description:

    The Energy statistics handbook provides current monthly, and historical annual energy data covering the last 12 years. This is a comprehensive source of detailed information on the energy field and a useful tool for those who analyze and follow the availability, production and use of energy in Canada. Data are organized and presented in a logical, easy-to-use manner by energy type. Selected economic indicators (money market, gross domestic product, etc.) are included to enhance understanding of the links between macroeconomic indicators and energy statistics.

    Description:

    This article looks in more detail at how the commodity boom has affected our primary industries over the last 5 years, notably the shift from forestry to energy and mining. Rather than being 'hewers of wood and drawers of water', it is more accurate to say 'conveyors of crude and moilers of metals'.

    Description:

    This article provides an analysis of greenhouse gas emissions from a demand perspective. The analysis is based on the greenhouse gas emissions accounts and input-output accounts produced at Statistics Canada. It shows that domestic requirements for goods and services led to 54% of Canadian industrial emissions, while production to satisfy exports accounted for the remaining 46%. Between 1990 and 2002, emissions associated with domestic demand grew slowly at 0.4% while those associated with the production of goods for export grew by 50%.

    Description:

    Using the Survey of Household Facilities and Equipment and the Survey of Household Spending, this article shows that, since the 1940s, Canadians have rapidly adopted new energy sources for household heating. It then shows how these important changes have affected greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the residential sector in recent decades.

    Description:

    This study examines the increase of energy consumption in Canada, in the provinces and the northern territories between 1990 and 2003. The increase is compared with the consumption of energy per capita and the economic activity. The energy types examined are refined petroleum products (motor gasoline, diesel, heavy fuel oil), natural gas, coal and electricity.

    Description:

    Canadians live in a vast country with an abundance of energy resources. This natural resource wealth has played an important role in our economy, enabling us to meet our own energy needs and at the same time become one of the world's leading exporters of energy.

    Canadians are concerned aboutthe supply of energy and available alternativesthe impacts of energy use on the environmentgovernment action to address energy-related issues.

    This article creates a statistical portrait of Canada's energy resources to examine these concerns.

    Description:

    Businesses today are involved in a variety of practices aimed at preventing or reducing environmental degradation generated from their production activity. During the 1990s, the environmental regulation context changed. Increasingly, governments have relied on voluntary initiatives undertaken by businesses to reduce pollutants and waste, as opposed to regulations. However, at the same time, the federal authorities have undertaken to revise the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), in order to increase federal power for environmental regulation but with strong emphasis put on promoting pollution prevention. Consequently, businesses today are looking at alternative ways to limit impacts from their operations on the environment.

    Environmental Management and Technologies in the Business Sector presents a profile of business demand for environmental processes and technologies, pollution prevention methods and environmental practices, such as environmental management systems and voluntary actions. What types of treatment processes are the most popular ones for reducing gas emissions, liquid, solid and hazardous waste, noise, radiation and vibration, for saving energy or for site reclamation? What is the market for environmental processes and technologies? What pollution prevention methods are used more frequently? What additional environmental practices have businesses adopted (for instance, are voluntary programs more popular than eco-labelling?)?

    This paper is based on results from the Survey of Environmental Protection Expenditures. For the first time, the survey asked detailed questions on the type of environmental process or technology used and the adoption of environmental practices. The paper is a complement to both 1996-1997 and 1998 Environmental Protection Expenditures in the Business Sector reports (Catalogue no. 16F0006XIE).

    Geography: Canada
    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?
