Census of Agriculture data are available for various pre-established statistical and administrative areas. Subject to confidentiality constraints, data are published at the national, provincial and territorial levels, as well as three sub-provincial levels: census agricultural region, census division and census consolidated subdivision. Please go to geographic levels for a description.

The 2011 Census Dictionary has additional information on census geography.

The Reference maps provide the geographic boundaries, codes and names for all geographic areas appearing in the data tables.

Due to confidentiality constraints, when the data for a geographic area has very few farms, it is combined with the data from another census consolidated subdivision or census division. For the names of the geographic areas included in the amalgamation, go to Geographic area amalgamations.
