This data shows spatial density of Cereals cultivation in Canada. Regions with higher calculated spatial densities represent agricultural regions of Canada in which Cereals are more expected. Results are provided as rasters with numerical values for each pixel indicating the spatial density calculated for that location. Higher spatial density values represent higher likelihood to have Cereals based on analysis of the 2009 to 2020 AAFC annual crop inventory data.

The main objective of the 2017 CFP was to collect data and assess the compliance of infant foods to Canadian standards for residues of pesticides and metals. Previous years have analyzed pesticides, metals, veterinary drug residues, aflatoxins and environmental contaminants. In the 2017 CFP, a total of 534 samples of infant and toddler foods were purchased in the Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec areas between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018. These samples included infant cereal, fruit and vegetable purees, infant and toddler grain-based snacks and juices.
