Canadian Disaster Database
The Canadian Disaster Database is a publicly accessible web-based repository of historical information about natural and man-made disasters that have taken place since 1900 in Canada or abroad that have directly affected Canadians. The database contains information on over 1000 events and can be used to support research, academic activities and decision-making across a breadth of fields including earth sciences, agriculture, climate change, biology and epidemiology, land use planning, insurance, investment, and the anthropological and sociological aspects of community resilience, among many others.
Canada endeavours to provide the best information possible; however, the information contained in the Canadian Disaster Database (CDD) is based on information that is sourced from outside parties and may not be accurate. Canada makes no representations, warranties, or guarantees, express or implied, that the data contained in the CDD may be relied upon for any use whatsoever. Canada accepts no responsibility or liability for inaccuracies, errors or omissions in the data and any loss, damage or costs incurred as a result of using or relying on the data in any way. The CDD may contain material that is subject to licensing requirements or copyright restrictions and may not be reproduced, published, distributed or transferred in whole or in part without the consent of the author.
The CDD shares information on events that have fully concluded to ensure that the data reflects the event appropriately (i.e., insurance and disaster recovery payment information is available). For this reason, events for which the costs and/or other impacts have not fully recorded contributes to a delay in making them available through the CDD.
If you have technical questions about accessing or using the data in the CDD, please write to us at email@example.com.
