Footnotes:

The nine-digit geographic code at the end of the geographic names comprises two digits for the province, two for the census agricultural region, two for the census division and three for the census consolidated subdivision. Reference maps provide the geographic boundaries, codes and names for all geographic areas appearing in the data tables. 2016 Reference maps or 2011 Reference maps.
Due to confidentiality constraints, the data for one or more geographic areas having very few farms may be combined with the data from another census consolidated subdivision or census division. For the names of the geographic areas amalgamated access the 2016 Geographic area amalgamations or the 2011 Geographic area amalgamations.
The Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut are not included in Canada totals.
In 2011, due to confidentiality constraints the data for census division "100102000" were amalgamated with census division "100101000". Zero farms in census division "100102000" indicates that the farms were counted as part of census division "100101000".

The data for the Yukon are not included in the national totals because of the different definition of an agricultural operation in the territories and confidentiality constraints.
The data for the Northwest Territories are not included in the national totals because of the different definition of an agricultural operation in the territories and confidentiality constraints.
Total number of operators. Up to three operators can be reported per farm. This is a count of distinct operators; hence, operators of two or more separate farms are included only once in the total.
There are significant refinements in the geographic assignment of agricultural operations and changes in census consolidated subdivision boundaries between censuses. These assignment and boundary changes mean that caution should be taken when comparing the data between censuses. This effect is particularly pronounced when comparing 2016 Census of Agriculture data to previous census data in Prince Edward Island, Quebec and the Northwest Territories.
Census agricultural regions are composed of groups of adjacent census divisions. Prior to 2016, in Saskatchewan, census agricultural regions were made up of groups of census consolidated subdivisions, but these groups did not necessarily respect census division boundaries.
