Notes: Natural and semi-natural land lost to settled area is calculated by overlaying the growth in settled area from 1971 to 2011 on natural and semi-natural land from the Canada Land Inventory: Land Use (CLI: LU) base layer and, for areas where the 1971 settled area was trimmed, on the area reclassified using AAFC's Land Use, 1990. Natural and semi-natural land lost to roads is not included. Other could include rock and unvegetated surfaces; wetland; mines, quarries, sand and gravel pits; outdoor recreation; other natural and semi-natural land and unmapped areas.
