    Hi AgCan, two questions: #1 You mention the average farm family income is more that $101,000. What percentage of that average is off-farm income?

    #2. What is the value of Canadian agri-food exports? (The video only mentions agriculture & agri-food combined)

    Hello Jay Garlough – thanks for connecting with us on YouTube! You can find more info about average off-farm income on the Statistics Canada website: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/tables-tableaux/sum-som/l01/cst01/agri119a-eng.htm.

    You’ll find the value of Canadian agri-food exports for 2012, 2013 and 2014 on the Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada website: http://www.agr.gc.ca/eng/?id=1410072148230. In 2014, their value was $51.5 billion – roughly 53% of coming from agriculture exports and about 47% from processed agricultural products exports.

    Hi Michael Sanders.

    Hi Michael Sanders, thank you for your question. You can learn more about farm income by farm type and by province by checking out this year’s Canadian Agricultural Outlook: http://www.agr.gc.ca/eng/about-us/publications/economic-publications/alphabetical-listing/2016-canadian-agricultural-outlook/?id=1455901351212.
