The Hillcrest mine disaster, the worst coal mining disaster in Canadian history, occurred at Hillcrest, Alberta, in the Crowsnest Pass region of western Canada, on Friday, June 19, 1914, 9:30 am. The disaster was reported by several news outlets including the Calgary Herald as the world's third-worst mine disaster at the time, after the Fraterville Mine disaster and the Courrières mine disaster. This was inaccurate due to lack of accounting for older mine disasters or those in non-western countries, and it was likely not even among the 10 worst at the time.
