A Jazz de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-GJZG performing flight QK-8161 from Vancouver,BC to Victoria,BC (Canada) with 27 passengers and 4 crew, was climbing through about 1000 feet out of Vancouver's runway 26L when the cargo door handle released causing the aircraft to lose pressurization and activating the master caution light. The crew declared emergency, stopped the climb at 2000 feet and returned to Vancouver for a safe landing on runway 26L about 7 minutes after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported the cargo door handle had opened, however, the door hooks had remained on the latches. The door mechanism was tested and found serviceable. No faults were found with the door handle or door assembly.
