The Mid-Canada Boreal bioregion, located in the Subarctic America (Nearctic) realm, is defined predominantly by the plains and foothill forests lying between the Northern Rockies to the west and the Canadian Shield forests to the east. It consists of two ecoregions – Alberta-British Columbia Foothills Forests (345), Mid-Canada Boreal Plains Forests (376) – and includes Lake Winnipeg with one of the largest watersheds in Canada. The total area of this bioregion is approximately 69 million hectares.
