Abstract: The Agri-Environmental Indicator Project aims to develop a core set of regionally-sensitive national indicators that build on and enhance the information base currently available on environmental conditions and trends related to primary agriculture in Canada. The soil erosion component of the Indicator of Risk of Soil Degradation is an important part of the core set of indicators. This study reports indicators of soil erosion risk that focus on recent progress across the country in addressing issues of both wind and water erosion. The specific study objectives addressed in the following sections of this report are: to identify estimated rates of erosion risk at the national, provincial and soil landscape level across Canada; and to identify changes in soil erosion risk over a 10 year period (1981-1991).
