Sub-activity 3.1.5

Geohazards and Public Safety

Description

To ensure that Canadians are protected from natural hazards constant monitoring and effective planning for adverse natural events are required. Such events include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, geomagnetic storms, radiological and nuclear incidents, and tsunamis. The provision of hazard information and products helps other levels of government, including international government bodies, the private sector and professional organizations such as the Canadian Institute of Planners to prepare for and mitigate natural disasters. This work also meets Natural Resources Canada’s obligation for ongoing nuclear test monitoring, as is required under the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. This sub activity comprises of a research component that disseminates risk-related information to support the response, recovery and preparedness phases of emergency management.
