Abstract

This report summarizes the major findings of a study in which an integrated agro-ecological economic modeling system was constructed around Agriculture Canada's Canadian Regional Agriculture Model (CRAM) to analyze the economic and environmental impacts of proposed agricultural policies. The discussion covers the integrated modeling system and the policy analysis results, and presents future recommendations that emphasize how the current system can be improved.
