Multi-state regions in the United States, provinces and territories in Canada and countries like Japan, New Zealand, and Australia register the most people.

Victoria is located in a high risk zone. Earthquakes are happening all the time!
More than 3,000 earthquakes occur in British Columbia each year. Most are too small to be felt, but the risk of one big enough to cause significant damage is very real. Participating in ShakeOutBC is an effective way to better understand BC’s earthquake risk and how to prepare.
