Summary in English
In January 1998 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada commissioned Angus Reid Group to conduct a large-scale study of Canadian Farmers' attitudes toward change and risk and the ways that they deal with these issues on their farm operations. The research is intended to provide AAFC with a better understanding of farmers' general attitudes and behaviour in adapting to change and managing risk.

The executive summary addresses the quantitative component of the research. Response to the survey was largely positive as farmers appreciated having the opportunity to provide direct feedback to government on policy and program-related issues. Refusal rates were significantly below average for agriculture surveys of this length.
