Certain regions of Canada actually experience tornadoes fairly often; namely, southern Alberta; Manitoba and Saskatchewan; southern Ontario; southern Quebec; the interior of British Columbia; and western New Brunswick. In fact, with the exception of the United States, Canada gets more tornadoes than any country. Environment Canada sends out warnings throughout Canada when tornadoes are expected to occur.
Each year in Canada an average of 80 tornadoes occur, resulting in about two deaths and twenty injuries on a yearly basis and running into the tens of millions of dollars in damage. In the Manitoba town of Elie in the summer of 2007, the strongest tornado recorded in Canada occurred, reaching an F5 on the Fujita scale and wind speeds of 510 kilometers per hour.
