  • This dataset from the 2016 Census of Agriculture presents the following theme: crops. It includes data about hay and field crops, vegetables (excluding greenhouse vegetables), fruits, berries, nuts, greenhouse productions and other crops. Data is presented at the Provinces and Territories (PR), the Census Agricultural Regions (CAR), the Census Divisions (CD) and the Census Consolidated Subdivisions (CCS) levels.

  • This dataset from the 2016 Census of Agriculture presents the following theme: livestock, poultry and bees. It includes data about livestock, poultry and bees. Data is presented at the Provinces and Territories (PR), the Census Agricultural Regions (CAR), the Census Divisions (CD) and the Census Consolidated Subdivisions (CCS) levels.

  • In 2014, the Earth Observation Team of the Science and Technology Branch (STB) at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) repeated the process of generating annual crop inventory digital maps using satellite imagery to for all of Canada, in support of a national crop inventory. A Decision Tree (DT) based methodology was applied using optical (Landsat-8) and radar (RADARSAT-2) based satellite images, and having a final spatial resolution of 30m. In conjunction with satellite acquisitions, ground-truth information was provided by provincial crop insurance companies and point observations from the BC Ministry of Agriculture and our regional AAFC colleagues.

  • The “Agricultural Major Land Practices Groups of the Canadian Prairies” dataset lays out the areas of the 5 Major Land Practices Groups of the agricultural portions of the Canadian Prairies. They are represented by vector polygons amalgamated (dissolved) from the Version 1.9 SLC polygons sharing common water resources, land use and farming practices as developed in the “Agricultural Land Practices Groups of the Canadian Prairies by SLC Polygon” of this series. The dataset is based upon selected attributes from the Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC) and the 1996 Census of Agriculture. Typical attributes including: land in pasture, land in summerfallow, crop mixture, farm size and the level of chemical and fertilizer inputs.

  • The following dataset correspond to the 1 km agricultural mask from Statistics Canada’s Crop Condition Assessment Program (CCAP). The mask have been generated from the classes 110 to 199 of the 2015 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s landcover classification. The selection was then generalized to a spatial resolution of 1 km. The 2015 mask was used from the 2015 to the 2018 growing seasons inclusively.

  • The following dataset correspond to the 230 m agricultural mask from Statistics Canada’s Crop Condition Assessment Program (CCAP). The mask have been generated from the classes 110 to 199 of the 2015 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s landcover classification. The selection was then generalized to a spatial resolution of 230 m. The 2015 mask was used from the 2015 to the 2018 growing seasons inclusively.

  • The national agricultural ecumene includes all dissemination areas with 'significant' agricultural activity. Agricultural indicators, such as the ratio of agricultural land on census farms relative to total land area, and total economic value of agricultural production, are used. Regional variations are also taken into account. The ecumene is generalized for small-scale mapping. A new version of the agricultural ecumene was generated every census years (in vector format from 1986 and for the years 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006, 2011 and 2016). This file was produced by Statistics Canada, Agriculture Division, Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis section, 2017, Ottawa.

  • These datasets show the areas where major crops can be expected within the agricultural regions of Canada. Results are provided as rasters with numerical values for each pixel indicating the level of spatial density calculated for a specific crop type in that location. Regions with higher spatial density for a certain crop have higher likelihood to have the same crop based on the previous years mapped crop inventories.

  • This dataset from the 2016 Census of Agriculture presents the following theme: agricultural operation characteristics. It includes data about farm type, operating arrangement, paid agricultural work and financial characteristics of the agricultural operation. Data is presented at the Provinces and Territories (PR), the Census Agricultural Regions (CAR), the Census Divisions (CD) and the Census Consolidated Subdivisions (CCS) levels.
