  • Classification: 12-607-X
    Description:

    The Ecological Land Classification (ELC) is Statistics Canada's official classification for ecological areas in Canada.

    The ELC was developed to enable the production of integrated statistics for ecological areas. It is a hierarchical framework that classifies ecological areas or ecosystems and that incorporates all major components of ecosystems: air, water land and biota. All boundaries in the ecological framework are matched to soil landscape polygons from the Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC).

    There are 15 ecozones at the top of the ecological land classification hierarchy. They cover the entire terrestrial extent of Canada.

    These ecozones are subdivided into 53 ecoprovinces that contain 194 ecoregions, which can be further subdivided into 1,027 separate ecological units called ecodistricts.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200800310688
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Tillage involves preparing soil for planting or seeding by plowing, cultivating or otherwise turning it. Using data from the Census of Agriculture, this study examines conventional, conservation and no-till practices across the country.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X20050068759
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Zero tillage is a relatively recent innovation on Canadadian farms however, it may not always be suitable for all crop and soil conditions. Zero till practices matched appropriately to crop and field conditions have the potential to reduce agriculture's impacts on the environment and lower energy and labour costs. The main sources of data are from Statistics Canada's 2001 Farm Environmental Management Survey (FEMS) and the 2001 Census of Agriculture.

  • Articles and reports: 21-006-X2001002
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Many towns that started as agricultural trading centres have become successful and growing cities. Part of their original comparative advantage was their proximity to productive and fertile agricultural land. Now their continuing expansion is consuming this high-quality agricultural land. The purpose of this paper is to explore the amount of dependable agricultural land that has been lost to urbanisation.

  • Articles and reports: 21-601-M2001048
    Description:

    This paper investigates the relationship between livestock density within an area, farm intensity (number of animals per hectare at farm level) and farm size. It also examines whether large livestock farms are solely responsible for the high concentrations of animals.

  • Articles and reports: 21-004-X200010313027
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Crop producers were expected to move away from dependence on just a few traditional crops to better protect themselves from the income risks associated with price downturns and climatic events. Based on Statistics Canada survey data from Saskatchewan, there is only limited evidence to support this hypothesis, at least over the period 1994 to 1999.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 96-328-M2004003
    Description:

    This activity looks at the competition between agriculture and urban development for land around urban centres and the difficulties and advantages of farming close to urban areas. The pressure to build more housing in urban areas is strong, but such development takes some of Canada's best farmland out of production permanently. Should decisions on how this land is used be left solely to the market? Students will debate the issue.
