AbstractThis Open File provides the most up-to-date information on the significant earthquakes of Canada. Earthquakes are considered significant if their magnitude exceeded 6 on the Richter scale or if they had been felt by many Canadians at Modified Intensity VI or stronger. A total of 161 events were selected for the period 1600-2006. The information is provided in a Microsoft Excel sheet that provides for each event: the source information (Origin Time, Latitude, Longitude, Depth, Region, Magnitude); the impact (associated landslide(s), tsunami, damage to buildings, deaths, Maximum Modified Mercalli Intensity in Canada); a description of the event; the source of information and web links for additional information in English and French.
