The Footprint and Biocapacity of Ontario, Canada: Comparing Results for 2005 and 2010

This report summarizes an Ecological Footprint and biocapacity analysis of Canada and the province of Ontario, conducted by Global Footprint Network for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (OMNRF). The results in this report are based on an analysis using the 2014 edition of the National Footprint Accounts (NFA). These results differ from those using NFA 2008. As such, for consistency of comparison, we compared the 2005 and 2010 figures using the NFA 2015 Edition. Refer to Annex B for description of applied changes and improvements between the 2008 and 2014 NFA editions for Canada.

About Eric Miller

I am an Ecological Economist, currently working as a consulting economist and university lecturer. Most of my career has been in the Ontario and federal public service. About half of my work these days relates to ecosystem services: communicating the concept, assessing available information, and proposing ways to integrate the concept and measurement into policies and programs. I earned an MES in Ecological Macroeconomics from York University, a BA in Economics from McMaster University and a BSc in Biology from Carleton University.
