Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako

The Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako (RDBN) is a regional district in the Canadian province of British Columbia, Canada. As of the 2006 census, the population was 38,243. The area is 73,419.01 square kilometres. The regional district offices are in Burns Lake.

Its geographical components are the Peace River Regional Districts; on its north the boundary with the southern edge of the remote Stikine Region is separated from the Bulkley-Nechako Regional District by the 56th parallel north. The boundaries of the regional district near-entirely coincide with the territory of the Dakelh or Carrier peoples, and also some of that of the Dunneza (Beaver), but their reserves and governments lie outside the regional district system. Roughly identical in area to the old New Caledonia fur district in the days of the North West Company, it is still sometimes referenced as New Caledonia, but while trapping continues in some area, its economy is now based in forestry, mining, tourism (mostly ranching in southern areas).
