This study examines the changing area of agricultural land through regional environmental accounting in the Ottawa South Central Region of Eastern Ontario Canada from 1981 to 1996. In the field of environmental accounting, increasing attention has been paid to the national approach, with less research at the regional level. A national approach may show a country to have a large quantity of natural resources, including agricultural land areas, at a given period of time, yet not explore the nature and extent of change in the same resources in small areas at the regional level. This study proposes a regional model based upon census data analysis to illustrate the process and level of change in agricultural land area, and the model is then applied at Six Census SubDivisions in the Ottawa region.The study found that over the 15-year period there were significant changes in the area of agricultural land, in the form of a decline in the entire study area as a result of socio-economic factors, and that this in turn enhances regional expertise for researchers, planners and resource managers in the design of strategies and monitoring tools for gauging the temporal-spatial evolution of natural resources, including areas of farmland.
