  • Articles and reports: 16-508-X2021001
    Description:

    This article is based on data from the Agricultural Water Use Survey and discusses change in the amount of water used for irrigation over time, land areas, and crop types receiving irrigation, irrigation systems used, and the adoption of irrigation water and energy conservation practices across Canada. The Agricultural Water Survey is a biennial survey that is conducted to gather information on irrigation water use, irrigation methods and practices, and sources and quality of water use for agricultural purposes on Canadian farms.

  • Stats in brief: 16-508-X2016001
    Description:

    This fact sheet looks at the irrigation methods and conservation practices used on Canadian farms, using data from the 2014 Agricultural Water Survey.

  • Articles and reports: 16-002-X200900310927
    Geography: Canada
    Description:

    Water is essential for crop production, whether it is provided by rain or irrigation. Although relatively few farms in Canada irrigate, this use of water can represent a significant portion of water use in some areas of the country. This article presents information on the use of irrigation in 2007.

  • Articles and reports: 21-601-M2007087
    Description:

    This paper describes the efforts and results of Statistics Canada to produce comparable agricultural water use estimates at the national, provincial and sub-sub-drainage area level for reference year 2001.

  • 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: 16-001-M2009008
    Description:

    In 2008, Statistics Canada conducted the first Agricultural Water Use Survey. This pilot survey is part of the Canadian Environment Sustainability Indicators initiative and collects information on volumes of water used for irrigation, irrigated areas, irrigation practices and the quality of water used for agricultural purposes. This technical paper describes the methodology used for the pilot survey and includes recommendations for future cycles of the survey. The validation process seems to indicate that the method used to estimate the volumes of water used and the irrigated areas calculated underestimates the results. The report gives recommendations to minimize this bias in the next iterations of the survey. First, it is recommended to simplify the level of information collected by the survey; to review the sampling methodology; and to examine other means of collecting information on volumes of water used for irrigation. This pilot version of the survey remains a reliable source for consistent data on agricultural water use.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 96-328-M2004010
    Geography: Geographical region of Canada
    Description:

    This activity focuses on how water is used for irrigation, the benefits and risks associated with irrigation and the ways farmers manage their water use.

  • Surveys and statistical programs – Documentation: 5145
    Description: The Agricultural Water Survey is conducted to gather information on irrigation water use, irrigation methods and practices, and sources and quality of water used for agricultural purposes on Canadian farms. The results will help farm operators, governments and the Canadian public gain a better understanding of the demand for water and how it is used on Canadian farms.
