A North Cariboo de Havilland Dash 8-300, registration C-GAQN performing flight NCB-2020 from Calgary,AB to Edmonton,AB (Canada) with 34 people on board, was level at 14,000 feet on departure out of Calgary when the crew heard a noise followed by an uncommanded yaw of the aircraft. Believing the aircraft had suffered a power loss the crew actioned the memory checklist items for a power loss enroute, during which the crew determined all engine (PW123) indications were normal and decided to not shut down an engine. The aircraft returned to Calgary for a safe landing about 35 minutes after departure.

The Canadian TSB reported maintenance found a right hand propeller blade bent together with evidence of ice in the engine inlet. The right hand engine is being replaced.
