Summary in English
This 2006 report provides an economic overview of the Canadian agriculture and agri-food system. It begins by looking at the contribution of the system to the whole economy, then each segment of the agri-food chain is reviewed, going upstream from consumers to food distribution, food, beverage and tobacco (FBT) processing, primary agriculture, all the way to input supply. Charts, figures and tables with brief accompanying texts are used to summarize information and to provide base performance indicators.
