Agri-Food Statistics Update - Issue No. EMP13-1 - April 4, 2013

Collected from a variety of sources, the Statistics and Data Development Branch monitors statistical indicators of agri-food activity for Alberta. The Agri-Food Statistics Update is designed to provide users with commentary on current issues, trends and new developments related to agriculture and the food and beverage processing industries. Up-to-date statistics are supplemented with informative charts and diagrams. To gauge Alberta’s performance, comparative data and information are often available for Canada and the provinces.

This Update presents annual 2008 to 2012 estimates of employment in Alberta’s agri-food industries (agriculture industries and food and beverage manufacturing industries).

The source of the data is Statistics Canada’s Labour Force Survey which generates detailed information on labour market conditions. Employed workers (aged 15 years and over) consist of two categories: employees (work for a private business or for the government or public) and the self-employed (working owners of businesses, farms or professional practices). Employment estimates also refer to unpaid family labour and include both full-time and part-time employment.

Note: Industry estimates are based on the general nature of the business carried out by the employer for whom the survey respondent works (main job only).
