Survey of Industrial Processes – Retail gasoline outlets, 2009
The survey of industrial processes (SIP) is a pilot survey that was conducted to assess the feasibility of collecting data on operational activities and engineering processes of small and medium enterprises (SME) across Canada. For the 2009 reference period, the SIP pilot survey covered all retail gasoline outlets, including marinas with gas docks, across Canada. This release focuses on general statistics relating to equipment, processes, and activities reported by retail gasoline outlets at the national level. As a proof of concept Statistics Canada is currently assessing the utility of the data collected from this pilot survey for estimating environmental outcomes such as gasoline evaporative losses from this SME sector of the Canadian economy. Outcomes and estimates will be published in an upcoming report.
Released March 23, 2011.

Households and the Environment, 2009
Statistics Canada conducts the Households and the Environment Survey every two years to measure household behaviours with respect to the environment. The survey collects information that can be used to measure changes in environmental practices at the household level. The subjects examined include energy and water conservation, drinking water source and treatment, radon awareness and testing, indoor and outdoor air quality, and the use and disposal of potentially hazardous household substances.

Industrial Water Survey, 2009
Statistics Canada recently completed the data collection phase of the biennial Industrial Water Survey. The survey gathered information on the intake and discharge of water by three groups of industries during 2009: manufacturing, mining and thermal-electric generating industries. It collected information on sources of water, purposes for which the water was used, whether water was re-circulated or re-used, where the water was discharged and what treatments were used. It also collected information on water acquisition costs, treatment costs and operating and maintenance expenses related to water intake and discharge.
Currently the data are being processed and the final report is scheduled for release in the fall.
Results from the 2007 version of the survey are found here: Industrial Water Use, 2007.
