Over the last 40 years, there has been an expansion of activity in applications of near-surface geophysical techniques for various types of geohazards investigations in Canada; numerous national and international research groups have been working with the Near Surface Geophysics Section of the Geological Survey of Canada to develop techniques for specific Canadian engineering and environmental geohazards problems. A few of the more interesting examples from widespread parts of the country are discussed in this paper.
