This map indicates the degree of reliance of each of the 298 communities on forest-related industries. The index range spans the complete range from 50% up to 100% with most communities having values in the lower half of this range. Even though there are two widely-separated zones of these communities in Eastern Canada and Western Canada, there is little difference between the two zones in the overall degree of reliance. Many of these places depend on local forestry activity such as logging and on manufacturing industries such as pulp and paper production for their economic sustainability.

Each of the 84 communities shown on this map has a 30% or higher reliance on two of the resource sectors of agriculture, energy, fisheries, forestry or mining. The large majority of these communities are located in the four western provinces (48) or in Quebec (25). Most are small communities in terms of population: only Brant, Ontario and Val-d’Or, Quebec, have more than 12 000 people; five other communities in western Canada have 10 000 to 12 000 people. Almost all other communities have 2 000 or fewer inhabitants.

In 1999 there are two operational mines in Nunavut: the Polaris and Nanisivik mines. The Polaris zinc-lead mine located on Little Cornwallis Island, is the most northerly mine in the world. The principal elements it extracts are zinc, lead and calcium. The Nanisivik zinc-lead-silver mine is located near the village of the same name.

In Canada, mines are most heavily concentrated in the Mixedwood Plains, Boreal Shield, Prairie, and Montane Cordillera ecozones. Mines require accessibility, and are therefore strongly correlated with transportation routes. While most mines are designed as closed systems, occasionally water pollution results from problems in the mining, or milling processes, and aquatic ecosystems can be affected. The map shows the number of mines per ecoregion.
