Summary:Seismic hazard values are estimated for 226 Canadian Missions abroad. We started with results from the GEM global seismic hazard model, supplemented by values from the literature. The available values were adapted as necessary by applying spectral shape and magnification factors to get the spectral acceleration values needed. The factors required were derived from Canadian seismic hazard results. The hazard values are intended for screening purposes to assess safety of Missions and continuity of consular services in the context of the 2015 National Building Code of Canada.
