Natural Hazards of Canada
Canada borders on three oceans, stretches across six time zones, encompasses mountains, plains, forests and tundra. It hosts weather patterns that range from Arctic to moderate, from seemingly endless rains to drought, from numbing cold to heat waves. With all those landforms and weather types, the possibilities of severe weather and geological events are a constant reality.
The following maps and data reveal the locations, types and magnitudes of significant natural disasters that have affected Canada during a 150-year period.
