  • Thematic map: 16-201-X
    Description:

    Human Activity and the Environment (16-201-X) is an annual publication that focuses on a current environmental issue. The latest information and statistics are gathered from many sources to produce an in-depth analytical article.

    Release date: 2018-03-14

  • Public use microdata: 16M0001X
    Description:

    The file provides data for Canada, the provinces and census metropolitan areas and includes information on a wide range of topics, including water quality concerns; consumption and conservation of water; energy use and home heating and cooling; pesticide and fertilizer use on lawns and gardens; recycling, composting and waste disposal practices. It also provides information on the socio-demographic, income and labour force characteristics of the population.

  • Table: 16-401-X
    Description:

    The Industrial Water Survey will provide information about the quantities of water consumed and costs, sources, treatments and discharge of water used for manufacturing, mining and power generating industries. Additional industries will be surveyed in subsequent years.

    The Industrial Water Survey uses three separate questionnaires to collect data from respondents, one for manufacturing, one for the mineral extraction industries and another for the thermal-electric power generators.

    There is an independent sampling strategy for each of the three sectors. The frame used for sampling purposes is the Statistics Canada Business Register.

    The sample for the thermal-electric power generating stations is a census. A probability design is used for sample selection in the manufacturing and mineral extraction sectors.

  • Table: 16F0023X
    Description:

    This report presents results and analysis of two surveys: the Waste Management Industry Survey: Business Sector, and the Waste Management Industry Survey: Government Sector.

    Information on the physical quantities of non-hazardous and hazardous waste collected, disposed of and recycled was gathered from these surveys.

    The first survey covered those operations and facilities owned by businesses that provided waste management services while the second covered operations and facilities owned by Canadian local governments and other local bodies engaged in the delivery of waste management services.

    Information on the employment and financial characteristics of businesses and local governments involved in the supply of these services is also reported.

  • Table: 16-201-S
    Description:

    Human Activity and the Environment: Detailed Statistics (16-201-S) is a collection of statistics focusing on human activities from an environmental perspective. Data are compiled from many sources including Statistics Canada, federal government departments, provincial governments and other sources. It is complimented by Human Activity and the Environment (16-201-X), which provides analysis on current environmental issues.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800110539
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Households across the country regularly produce special wastes ranging from dead batteries to old paint containers. This study focuses on four special wastes for which information was collected in the 2006 Households and the Environment Survey' leftover or expired medication, dead batteries, old computer and communication equipment and leftover paint.

  • 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.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 16-505-G
    Description:

    Part of Statistics Canada's Econnections: linking the environment and the economy statistical series, this publication describes in detail the conceptual frameworks, data sources and empirical methods used to compile the Canadian System of Environmental and Resource Accounts (CSERA). Designed to be compatible with the accounting frameworks of the System of National Accounts, the CSERA allows users to easily analyze the linkages between economic activity and the environment in terms of material and energy flows, environmental expenditures and natural resource stocks. This publication will be of interest to researchers in both the economic and environmental fields who want to familiarize themselves with the accounting concepts of the CSERA. It is a companion volume to Environment-economy indicators and detailed statistics (catalogue no. 16-200-XKE), another product in the Econnections series.

  • Articles and reports: 16-201-X20050008657
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Waste has always been a by-product of human activity. Indeed, all aspects of our lives - working, playing, eating - generate some form of waste. Managing it has been a challenge for millennia, more so since the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century gave rise to unprecedented industrialization and urbanization.Canadians are concerned today about many waste-related issues. These include:The generation of waste - how much garbage is produced in Canada, and is production going up or down? The impact of waste on the environment - has the way we deal with garbage changed over the years?What are governments and others doing to address these concerns?This article examines these issues by creating a statistical portrait of solid waste in Canada.

  • Articles and reports: 11F0027M2004026
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    This paper develops a production framework that allows for self-supplied water intake, an unpriced 'natural' input. The framework is then exploited to estimate the corresponding water shadow prices and to assess the extent to which water impacts on the multifactor productivity performance of the Canadian business sector's industries.

    Description:

    This report presents results and analysis of the Waste Management Industry Survey: Government Sector. The survey gathers information on waste collection, disposal and recycling practices of Canadian municipalities. The document provides an overview of waste management activities in large municipalities (5 000 or more residents). More than three quarters of the Canadian population are represented in this survey, allowing for estimates of municipal solid waste at the national level and for selected regional groupings. The report also presents information on waste management expenditures by local governments, including expenditures for services provided by contractors and by government employees.
