Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Ontario:

A Comprehensive Assessment

This report presents a single detailed picture of nearly all sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from Ontario agricultural production and production of associated farm inputs. Ontario has the most farmers of any province in Canada and makes up almost 20% of the country’s GHG emissions from agriculture. Thus, a comprehensive, fine-grained picture of agricultural emissions in Ontario is crucial to farmers’ and policymakers’ efforts to reduce emissions from Canadian agriculture as a whole. 

Solutions to address the climate crisis in Canadian agriculture must understand the specific context of Ontario that this report provides: where exactly emissions are coming from and how they have changed over time.
