Commodities in Canada are produced for both domestic and export markets. The sectors of grains and oilseeds, and red meat have both a domestic and export orientation. The dairy, and poultry and eggs sectors are under a supply-managed system. This ensures that domestic production matches demand, while providing a fair return to producers. This type of system is oriented towards self-sufficiency in the domestic market. The horticultural sector is also oriented primarily towards the domestic market.
