AbstractCanada's Fifth Generation seismic hazard model is the basis for the seismic design provisions in the 2015 National Building Code of Canada (NBCC). The SHEEF2010 version of the Seismic Hazard Earthquake Epicentre File (SHEEF) was compiled to be the authoritative catalogue for the Fifth Generation seismic hazard model. Canadian and American source catalogues were consulted, magnitudes and locations for important older earthquakes were re-evaluated, and moment magnitudes were assigned to the earthquakes based on appropriate conversion equations.
