Volcanoes in Canada

Catherine Hickson

Volcanoes in Canada? Yes! Canada’s western margin is geologically extremely active. This activity is the result of living on the edge of the huge North American continent, actually a giant tectonic "plate". Off the coast of British Columbia this plate runs into another tectonic plate. The jamming together of these plates creates earthquakes and volcanoes! (Figure 1 on previous page).
