The Western Canada sector is a term used to categorise micronations located in Western Canada. The term was first used by the Arctic of Veskrai in 2020 to describe these micronations which are close in proximity and relations. In total, 25 nations have existed in Western Canada between 2005 and present, notably including Vikesland which existed for fifteen years and gained media recognition beyond the micronational community.

The land that is now Western Canada was inhabited by various indigenous peoples for thousands of years prior to European colonisation, including the peoples native to the Northwest Coast, Plateau, Plains, and Subarctic regions. The area is also the homeland of the Métis.
Early European involvement in Western Canada can be characterised by events such as the North American fur trade, the establishment of the Colony of British Columbia in 1858, and Canadian Confederation in 1867. Following Confederation, there was the Rupert's Land and North-Western Territory transfer in 1870, the singing of the Numbered Treaties from 1871 to 1921, and the waves of immigration that followed the Dominion Lands Act in 1872 and the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1885.
