    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.

Topics include ecosystem accounting, asset accounts (natural resources in physical and monetary terms), physical flow accounts (energy and water use, and waste and greenhouse gas emissions), environmental activity statistics (expenditures on environmental protection), and the applications and extensions of those accounts (attribution of physical flows to final demand and intensity measures).

    This user's guide has been developed by the Environmental Statistics Program to facilitate access to environmental-economic accounting information throughout Statistics Canada and to explain its linkage with international standards, the United Nations System of Environmental-Economic Accounting. This guide is continually being updated to maintain its relevance.
