Mount Edziza is a stratovolcano in the Stikine Country of northwestern British Columbia, Canada. The Volcano and the surrounding area are protected within Mount Edziza Provincial Park. It consists of a complex named Mount Edziza volcanic complex. The complex consists of multiple peaks and ridges, with several glaciers flowing in all directions. The summit is topped by an ice-filled caldera, which is almost 2 km (1 mi) wide. The three main peaks around the summit caldera are the southwest summit, the southeast summit and the north summit.
Mount Edziza is Canada's highest volcano at 2,787 m (9,144 ft). However, Mount Silverthrone in southwestern British Columbia, has a height of 2,865 m (9,400 ft) and might be the highest volcano in Canada. But it has never been determined if Silverthrone's 2,865 m (9,400 ft) high point is actually volcanic rock or not (it is covered by snow and ice), making Mount Edziza the highest confirmed volcano in Canada.
