An overview of the Canadian Agriculture and Agri-Food System

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada produces an annual report on the Canadian agriculture and agri-food system that is an excellent place to start learning about the industry. 

This report is meant to be a multi-purpose reference document to provide:

  • an introduction to the agriculture and agri-food system;
  • a snapshot of structural changes that are occurring throughout the system in response to various factors; and
  • background data and information to inform public discussions on challenges and opportunities facing Canadian agriculture.

Click here to go to the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada webpage where you can find reports dating back to 2003.
