    Description:

    The objective of this working paper is to document the structure and trends for the rural population of Canada, using three major definitions of rural Canada: the "census rural" definition, the "rural and small town" definition and the OECD "predominantly rural region" definition. This analysis is entirely based on data from the Census of Population from 1981 to 2006 (Statistics Canada, 2007).

    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Think fast, what's the first food you think of when someone says Thanksgiving dinner'? Most people would be quick to reply turkey of course. Increasingly, though, turkeys are no longer solely associated with Thanksgiving or Christmas and can be found year-round in our grocery stores and on our tables. In 2006, the Census of Agriculture identified 3,174 Canadian farms reported 7.7 million turkeys on their operations.

    Geography: Canada

  • Articles and reports: 96-325-X200700010646
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Food is as much a necessity as the air we breathe and the water we drink. But do we know where our food comes from, and what it takes to get it into our kitchens? The question of where our food is grown or processed is coming under increased scrutiny, not just in Canada but in other countries, including our trading partners. Concerns underlying this increased focus include discussions of energy consumption required for food transport, environmental concerns, product safety, food security and food costs. The article, Fork in the Road, takes a look at the trade in food and shows how Canadians can find out what foods are being produced in their local area.

  • Geographic files and documentation: 92-175-G
    Description:

    This boundary file delineates areas of significant agricultural activity in Canada as indicated by the 2006 Census of Agriculture. It is available at the Canada level, except for the territories, and is generalized for small-scale mapping. This agricultural ecumene enables users to thematically map data aggregated to the census division level and limits the data display to those areas where agricultural activity is concentrated in Canada. When used in dot and chloropleth maps, the ecumene concept provides a more accurate depiction of the spatial distribution of data within standard geographic areas such as census divisions. Agricultural indicators including the ratios of total agricultural land to total land area, and total agricultural receipts to total land area were used in generating the agricultural ecumene.

    Description:

    Sugar beets, significantly established in Canada in the first half of the 20th century, continue to sweeten things for farmers in Ontario and Alberta, according to Census of Agriculture data. Although Canada's sugar beet area in 2006, at 19,488 hectares, is only half the 1951 peak, the crop continues to thrive in Alberta, and has made a comeback in Ontario, a province where it had not been significant for decades.

    Description:

    The results of this research show that exposure to global restructuring trends increases community vulnerability to population and employment decline. Similarly, other condititions of community distress, such as high unemployment rates and low participation rates, increase the vulnerability to decline. Community assets, such as human capital, economic diversification, and proximity to agglomerations, reduce vulnerability to population and employment decline.

It is available at the Canada level, except for the territories, and is generalized for small-scale mapping. This agricultural ecumene enables users to thematically map data aggregated to the census division level and limits the data display to those areas where agricultural activity is concentrated in Canada. When used in dot and chloropleth maps, the ecumene concept provides a more accurate depiction of the spatial distribution of data within standard geographic areas such as census divisions. Agricultural indicators including the ratios of total agricultural land to total land area, and total agricultural receipts to total land area were used in generating the agricultural ecumene.
