The Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR) will be hosting a workshop this month on earthquake hazard estimation.

Dr. Kristy Tiampo from Western University will discuss her research on the topic during the event on Nov. 16 at ICLR’s downtown Toronto office, part of its ongoing Friday Forum series.

Eastern North America is more stable and has much lower seismicity than plate boundary regions, but earthquake hazard still exists for the region, ICLR noted. The seminar will “present new methods for evaluating plate motions and strain in eastern Canada and elsewhere, and the relation to earthquake hazard,” the group said.

The event will be held at 20 Richmond St. East, Suite 200, in downtown Toronto on Nov. 16 (10:00 am to 11:30 am). The event will also be viewable via WebEx webcast for those unable to attend in person. 

Member companies can send two participants at no cost. A fee of $75 will apply for additional attendees. The cost for non-members is $150 per person for each forum. There is no cost to view the webcast of the event.
