For the average of the past three years:
- The estimated total impact on the Canadian economy from wheat, barley, durum, and oats averaged $68.8 billion per year.
- Over 370,000 paid full time equivalent jobs are supported by the four crops, with supported family members bringing the total close to 400,000.
- The total wage impact of the four crops averaged $27.0 billion.
