First to be thanked are Canadian farmers. The success of the Canadian agricultural statistics program rests upon their continued assistance. Every five years they are called upon to fill out the Census of Agriculture and, in between, many are contacted by our survey program to update the statistics that describe what is happening in the agriculture sector. We appreciate the co-operation of farmers across Canada, and hope that this publication will help give a wide range of Canadians a sense of the challenges and innovations they face and embrace as they grow agricultural products for Canada and the world.

Note of appreciation

Canada owes the success of its statistical system to a long-standing partnership between Statistics Canada, the citizens of Canada, its businesses, governments and other institutions. Accurate and timely statistical information could not be produced without their continued co-operation and goodwill.

Standards of service to the public

Statistics Canada is committed to serving its clients in a prompt, reliable and courteous manner. To this end, the Agency has developed standards of service which its employees observe in serving its clients.
