Federalism and Regionalism

Regionalism refers to the ways that social, political, cultural, and economic interests are often arranged in relation to geography. More specifically, regionalism in Canada refers to “the distinctive local character of a geographic area, or to a people’s perception of and identification with such places.”

While there are different ways of understanding regions and regionalism in Canada, in the Canadian context, regionalism is often discussed in relation to the Western provinces and Quebec.
