Characterizing Earthquake Risk in Canada

Please join Partners for Actionin hosting special guests from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) at evolv1 (in person only) on Thursday, April 27th at 9:30 am EDT to learn more about earthquake risk in Canada.  

NRCan recently completed a national-scale assessment of earthquake risk, and this talk will summarize the project context, inputs and assessment methods, findings, and implications for disaster risk reduction. The economic and life-safety risks Canadians face from earthquakes will be highlighted, including a framework that combines physical and social vulnerability factors to identify the jurisdictions most at risk from earthquakes nationally.  

You will also learn about RiskProfiler.ca—a new platform aimed at building resiliency to seismic risk through planning and emergency management actions.
