Its name was changed slightly by Pope John Paul II to the Apostolic Vicariate of Zamora en Ecuador on 22 February 1991. This avoids confusion with other cities called Zamora, in Europe and the Americas (including bishoprics in Spain and Mexico).
So far, all its apostolic vicars have been Franciscans (O.F.M. ).
