  • This dataset from the 2016 Census of Agriculture presents the following theme: characteristics of farm operators. It includes data about age, sex and the hours of works of farm operators. 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: land use, land tenure and management practices. It includes data about land use, land tenure, agricultural practices, land inputs, technologies used on the operation and the renewable energy production on the 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.

  • 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 (2001, 2006). This file was produced by Statistics Canada, Agriculture Division, Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis section, 2017, Ottawa.

  • In 2016, 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, Sentinel-2, Gaofen-1) 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 in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, & Quebec; point observations from the BC Ministry of Agriculture, & the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs; and data collection supported by our regional AAFC Research and Development Centres in St. John’s, Kentville, Charlottetown, Fredericton, Guelph, and Summerland.

  • The Canada Land Inventory (CLI), 1:250,000, Land Capability for Agriculture dataset illustrates the varying potential of a specific area for agricultural production. Classes of land capability for agriculture are based on mineral soils grouped according to their potential and limitations for agricultural use. The classes indicate the degree of limitation imposed by the soil in its use for mechanized agriculture. The subclasses indicate the kinds of limitations that individually or in combination with others, are affecting agricultural land use. Characteristics of the soil as determined by soil surveys.

  • The Canada Land Inventory (CLI), 1:000,000, Land Limitation for Agriculture dataset illustrates the varying potential of a specific area for agricultural production. Classes of land capability for agriculture are based on mineral soils grouped according to their potential and limitations for agricultural use. The classes indicate the degree of limitation imposed by the soil in its use for mechanized agriculture. The subclasses indicate the kinds of limitations that individually or in combination with others, are affecting agricultural land use. Characteristics of the soil as determined by soil surveys.

  • The Canada Land Inventory (CLI), 1:50,000, Land Capability for Agriculture dataset illustrates the varying potential of a specific area for agricultural production.
