I would say anything from Sudbury westward. At least from Thunder Bay westward.

winnipeg westward, although I think manitoba can often be grouped in with central.

Eastern canada is ottawa eastward, South of ottawa is southern canada, between ottawa and winnipeg is central, and anything north of edmonton is northern.

Alberta and BC, then Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories and Yukon. And Manitoba.

Winnipeg, or thereabouts westward. I tend to think of Manitoba as partially central and partially western. I think the south west part of the province, nearer Saskatchewan fits well in the west. Further east and north may be more central.

If we're speaking about a cultural region, rather than a geographic one, it'd probably be worthwhile to exclude the Pacific Coast and the Far North from that, as well.

I always considered Western Canada to be the provinces of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Central Canada was the Quebec/Windsor corridor (including Ottawa) and Atlantic Canada is the Maritimes + Newfoundland + coastal Quebec. I just thought of Northern Ontario as Northern Ontario, never considered it to be Western Canada.

This.

That's the concept most commonly used in definitions. From the prairie provinces westward.

I've never heard of an example of any definition of Western Canada that includes any part of Ontario.

I agree with that. And also include Yukon and Northwest Territories as north-west. Nunavut I think of as north-central Canada.

I agree with this. Also, Manitoba is definitely Western Canada.

I always viewed Manitoba as a buffer between God's country and those creeps and bums back east.
