Households and the Environment


In May 1991, Statistics Canada conducted the Household Environment Survey to measure household actions that have, or are perceived to have, positive or negative impacts on the environment. The survey provides baseline information to use in measuring progress towards sound environmental practices at the household level. The subjects examined include recycling and waste reduction practices, energy and water conservation practices, the use of recycled products, and the use and disposal of potentially hazardous household substances.
