Biographical history

In 1978, the Cariboo Forest District was renamed the Cariboo Forest Region, however its boundaries remained the same. Between 1978 and 1981, the region was reorganized to comprise the following smaller Forest Districts: Quesnel, Williams Lake, Horsefly, 100 Mile House and Alexis Creek.

In 2003 the region was amalgamated with the Nelson and Kamloops Forest Regions to form the Southern Interior Forest Region.

In 2010 the Southern Interior Forest Region ceased to exist and the Cariboo Forest Region was reestablished. It was renamed again in 2016 to the Cariboo Natural Resource Region.
