|The 2016 Census of Agriculture
is on the Horizon!
At the beginning of May 2016, Canadian farm operators will have the chance to take part in a national dialogue by completing the Census of Agriculture questionnaire.
Census of Agriculture data is the definitive source of community-level data. By drawing on this data, decision makers will be assured that they are acting in the interest of farmers, farm communities and agricultural operations.
Farm organizations are heavy users of census data and draw on this information to formulate policy recommendations, produce communications and outreach work, and conduct market development.
Regional, provincial and federal government policy advisors use Census of Agriculture data to help develop programs related to farm support and to evaluate the impact of natural disasters (such as floods, droughts and storms) on agriculture. This allows for a quick reaction when a natural disaster does occur.
