*The Northwestern Interior Forest LCC (NWIF LCC) officially changed its name to the Northwest Boreal LCC (NWB LCC) in September of 2012. Northwest Boreal LCC was selected as  it accurately describes the ecoregion, avoids redundancy in the name, specifically refers to the boreal ecosystems in the northwestern region of the continent, and is consistent with the Canada National Framework ecozone name for the same region (Boreal Cordillera). If the National LCC Network were to expand across Canada to include areas not currently contained within the LCC Network, the suggested name would continue to distinguish this LCC from other boreal-focused LCCs in North America.
