The Western Forefront territories are made of mainland Canada. The southernmost territories of the Borderlands include the mountainous St. Croix Highlands and the Atlantic coast city Saint John. Penobscot Bay and the Freetown are located to the southwest. St. John's chokehold separates the Borderlands from Branta Stretch, where the Canaan Bog meets the tundra like Serpentine Mountains.
- Climate: The lowlands feature long, dry summers that often spark forest fires, with the exception of the stretches of marshlands that seem to be humid and mysteriously foggy most of the year. The climate turns harsh and colder along the steppes like area of Serpentine Mountains, and the weather is often cloudy and wet, with harsh winds. The climate changes along the northern mountains, becoming drier and colder with the rising altitude. The mountains are covered by deep snow most of the winters, and the snowcaps don't disappear until early summer.
- Geography: This region is diverse in geography, and the areas vary from flat and dry lowlands and wet bogs to flat mesa-like territories with more genuine mountainous space towards the north. The area is significantly less arboraceous than other regions.
- Demographics: The Saint Croix Highlands with the Atlantic coast city of Saint John were the most populated areas before the apocalypse. Freetown was a significant hotspot for luperci until the meteorite hit in 2015, and has since lost its status as the prominent trade port west for Nova Scotia. Although there are human evidence elsewhere in the drier parts of the lowlands, most areas are completely claimed by nature, with the exception of scattered rural villages along the northern parts where the area becomes more mountainous.
- Prey: Abundant, with the exception of the tundra area of Serpentine Mountains and the mountains to the north.
- Fauna: Many of the creatures in this area are similar to those of Nova Scotia. Snoeshoe Hare, Muskrat, Porcupine, White Tail and the occasional Moose are most commonly found in the lowlands, and river otters and several species of native rodents thrive in the wetlands.
- Flora: The near barren terrains offer Mountain Cranberry, Alpine Bilberry and Northern Blueberry, while the lower areas are rich in various peat mosses and reindeer moss, dwarf huckleberry and cloudberry. Common tree species found in the area include balsam Fir, black spruce, jack pine and eastern cedar.
