Know the risks
Earthquakes on the North Shore

British Columbia has the highest earthquake risk in Canada. Southwestern BC, including the North Shore, are at the highest risk within BC. 

The North Shore could experience an earthquake that causes extensive damage and injury, and you may be left to take care of yourself unassisted for the first 72 hours. It's important to be prepared.
