The Cariboo Region is situated in B.C.’s central interior and covers an area of approximately 80,000 square kilometres and serves a population of just over 60,000 residents. The region encompasses the cities and districts of 100 Mile House, Quesnel, Wells and Williams Lake. People are drawn to the Cariboo for its pioneer feel and attracts wild spirits who enjoy adventure and those who are more drawn to writing the book than reading it.
Work: Manufacturing, forestry, mining, oil, gas and healthcare.
Play: Highway 24 has gained the moniker “the fishing highway” for its big and small lakes and rainbow trout. Visit The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin which hosts a collection of nearly 30,000 artifacts exhibiting the depth and breadth of the region’s history. Residents and visitors take advantage of outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, downhill skiing and snowboarding, wildlife viewing, camping and hiking.
Culture: The Central Cariboo Arts Centre provides studio space for the WL Spinners, Weavers, and Fibre Artists’ Guild, the Cariboo Potters’ Guild, and the Cariboo Art Society. The Cariboo Regional District also hosts Performances in the Park, an outdoor summer concert series. The town of Wells is a renowned artist retreat with studios and galleries housed in colourfully painted heritage buildings and a celebrated art school where vacationers can enroll in folk-art and music classes. Visit the Bridge River Fishing Grounds – the past and current fishing area of the St’at’imc People. Learn about the traditional, wind-dried method of preserving the salmon still used by its people today.
