Name of creator
The Fort George district was renamed the Prince George Forest District in 1953. However, the boundaries did not change. In 1972, the Cariboo Forest District was reestablished, and some of the lands in the Prince George Forest District were transferred back to it to replicate its previous boundaries.
In 1978, the Prince George Forest District was renamed the Prince George Forest Region, but the boundaries of the area remained identical. The Prince George Forest Region consisted of several smaller Forest Districts: Dawson Creek-Chetwynd, Fort Nelson, Fort St. James, Mackenzie, McBride-Valemont, Prince George, Vanderhoof and Fort St. John. This means the Prince George Forest District continued to exist after 1978, with smaller boundaries, as part of the larger Prince George Forest Region.
