The Canada Land Inventory was conducted cooperatively by the federal and provincial governments to provide an information base for a variety of land-use planning and rural development activities, including recent applications in assessment of potential environmental impacts. This inventory program comprised a series of interpretive classifications developed for agriculture, forestry, wildlife, and recreation. The land-capability ratings were based on an evaluation of information available in existing soil-landform and vegetation surveys, or obtained through new biophysical land-classification surveys in previously unsurveyed areas.
