The geodynamic evolution of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) was previously divided into two stages: (1) a passive margin prior to the Jurassic; and (2) a foreland basin from the mid.

The Sedimentary Basins of the United States and Canada, Second Edition, focuses on the large, regional, sedimentary accumulations in Canada and the United States. Each chapter provides a succinct summary of the tectonic setting and structural and paleogeographic evolution of the basin it covers, with details on structure and stratigraphy. The Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) is a vast sedimentary basin underlying 1,, square kilometres (, sq mi) of Western Canada including southwestern Manitoba, southern Saskatchewan, Alberta, northeastern British Columbia and the southwest corner of the Northwest consists of a massive wedge of sedimentary rock extending from the Rocky Mountains . A good example is the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin extending from the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains to central Manitoba. Examples of a smaller intracratonic basins are the Proterozoic Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan and the Mesozoic Bowser Basin in northwestern BC.
