General Notes

  • The nine-digit geographic code at the end of the geographic names comprises two digits for the province, two for the Census Agricultural Region, two for the Census Division and three for the Census Consolidated Subdivision.

  • There have been significant refinements in the geographic assignment of agricultural operations and changes in Census Consolidated Subdivision boundaries between 2011 and 2006 making Census Consolidated Subdivisions for these two censuses not comparable.

  • Due to confidentiality constraints, the data for one or more geographic areas having very few farms may be combined with the data from another Census Consolidated Subdivision or Census Division. For the names of the geographic areas amalgamated access Geographic area amalgamations.

  • Other boundary changes mean that caution should be taken when comparing the data for the following Census Agricultural Regions and Census Divisions: in New Brunswick, CAR 130400000, CAR 130100000, CD 130409000 and CD 130110000; in Quebec, CD 241346000 and CD 241347000; and in Ontario, CD 350551000 and CD 350552000.

  • Also in British Columbia there was one boundary change where Census Division 590125000 was split into Census Division 590124000 and Census Division 590126000. Census Division 590125000 no longer exists.



  • 1. The Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories and Nunavut are not included in Canada totals.

  • 67. Turkeys. Turkey inventories reflect the total number of birds on Census Day and should be used with caution. Poultry inventories will fluctuate because barns that were empty on Census Day had no inventories to report. Users are advised to use the annual production data as a more accurate reflection of changes in these agricultural sectors over time.

  • 69. Turkey production. Production is reported on a live-weight basis.
