About the Cariboo-Chilcotin
The Cariboo-Chilcotin covers 70,000 square km of BC’s Central Interior. The region features varied topography, abundant wildlife and spectacular landscapes — from craggy peaks. to cedar-hemlock forests, to grasslands. The Cariboo falls in the Interior plateau, east of the Fraser River, and the Chilcotin lies west of the Fraser.
In addition to its historic settlements, the region has spectacular scenery, outdoor adventure and a growing number of amenities for both its nearly 62,000 residents and its many visitors.
The boundaries of the Cariboo-Chilcotin region are based primarily on watersheds, including the Quesnel, West Road/Blackwater, Chilcotin, and Bridge-Seton watersheds and part of the Middle Fraser River - see About the Basin.
