Biographical history

The Fort George Forest District was established in 1913 under the Forest Act, 1912. Its headquarters was located in Prince George. In 1916 part of the Tete Juan Forest District was added to it.

In 1930, part of the lands in the Railway Belt, which had previously been administered by the federal government, were also added to Fort George. The remaining Railway Belt lands were added to the Kamloops and Vancouver Forest Districts. As a result of these changes, in 1932, half of the Cariboo Forest District was also added to the Fort George District. In 1972, the Cariboo Forest District was reestablished, and these lands were transferred back to it to replicate its previous boundaries.

The Fort George district was renamed the Prince George Forest District in 1953. However, the boundaries did not change.
