Name of creator
The Kamloops Forest District was established in 1913 under the Forest Act, 1912. In 1916, the district was expanded to include part of the Tete Juane Forest District due to staff shortages resulting from World War I. In 1918 The Lillooet Forest District was also added to Kamloops.
In 1930, the majority of the lands in the Railway Belt, which had previously been administered by the federal government, were also added to Kamloops. The remaining Railway Belt lands were added to the Vancouver and Fort George Forest Districts. As a result of these changes, in 1932, the area previously in the Vernon Forest District was added to the Kamloops Forest District, along with half of the Cariboo Forest District. In 1972, the Cariboo Forest District was reestablished, and these lands were transferred back to it to replicate its previous boundaries.
In 1978, the Kamloops Forest District was renamed the Kamloops Forest Region, however its boundaries remained the same. Between 1978 and 1981, the Region was reorganized to comprise of the following smaller Forest Districts: Clearwater, Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Vernon, Penticton, Merritt and Lillooet. These areas were based on the previous Ranger Districts. Note that the Kamloops Forest District continued to exist after 1978, however, it was a much smaller area part of the greater Kamloops Forest Region.
