Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The second largest country in the world, Canada has an area of nearly 10 million km2. A wide variety of landslides occur in the mountains, along river valleys, on hills and escarpments, in the extensive areas of permafrost, along the shores of oceans and lakes, and under water. Landslides are associated with both natural slopes and engineered excavations and fill slopes. The purpose of this report is to update the record with recent examples, present the landslides in the context of both geographic distribution and physical characteristics, and describe loss reduction approaches.
