|Human Activity and the
Environment 2011 is based on the analytical article "Economy and the
environment." The report starts with a discussion of how the economy and the
environment can be linked in conceptual terms (Section 2). It then presents
Canada's environment in the international context (Section 3). Sections 4, 5,
and 6 highlight Canada's endowment of natural resources and underline their
role in our economy with statistics on timber, energy, minerals, land, and
fresh water. Section 7 focuses on the flow of materials and energy between the
economy and the environment with statistics on the intensity of energy use and
resulting greenhouse gas emissions. Finally, Section 8 presents a selection of
statistics on what households, businesses, and governments are doing to reduce
their impact on the environment.
Data come from Statistics Canada and other sources, including other federal government departments and international organizations.
