Map of U.S. states and Canadian provinces, or portions, with active separatist movements

This is a list of currently active separatist movements in North America. Separatism includes autonomism and secessionism. What is and is not considered an autonomist or secessionist movement is sometimes contentious. Entries on this list must meet three criteria:

  1. They are active movements with living, active members.
  2. They are seeking greater autonomy or self-determination for a geographic region.
  3. They are the citizen/peoples of the conflict area and do not come from other countries.

Under each region listed is one or more of the following:
