National regions

Although these regions have no official status or defined boundaries the Provinces and territories are sometimes informally grouped into the following regions (generally from west to east):
All provinces and territories Senate divisions Seven-region model[1] Six-region model Five-region model[2] Four-region model Three-region model
British Columbia Western Canada (24 seats) British Columbia West Coast West Coast Western Canada Western Canada

Yukon The North (Territories) (3 seats) Northern Canada Northern Canada Northern Canada Northern Canada Northern Canada

Seats in the Senate are equally divided among four regions: Maritimes, Quebec, Ontario, and the West, with special status for Newfoundland and Labrador, and Northern Canada ('the North').

Interprovincial regions

Provincial regions

The provinces and territories are all sub-divided into regions for a variety of official and unofficial purposes. In some provinces, the regions have been officially defined by their respective governments. In others, the "regions" have no official status.
