A Westjet Encore de Havilland Dash 8-400, registration C-GVEN performing flight WS-3185 from Vancouver,BC to Victoria,BC (Canada) with 71 passengers and 4 crew, had climbed to 4000 feet for cruise flight to Victoria when the crew received a fuselage door open indication. The crew worked the related checklists, informed ATC and requested an airport vehicle to follow them on the runway in Victoria in case the door jumped open on landing and something fell out of the aircraft. The aircraft landed safely on Victoria's runway 27 about 14 minutes after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported: "The operator's maintenance adjusted the door lock sensor. An operational check of the door revealed no further faults, and the aircraft was returned to service."
