The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George (RDFFG) is home to a population of approximately 100,000 residents and represents the vibrant communities of Prince George, Mackenzie, Valemount, McBride and the areas in-between. Similar to the manner in which Canada is made up of provinces and territories, the RDFFG is a federation of municipalities and electoral areas. This rugged landscape covers an expanse of 52,000 square kilometers and is home to a spectacular wilderness, rich in wildlife and crossed by majestic mountain ranges, clear lakes and rushing rivers.

The people who call this area home are spread throughout the farmland of the Robson Valley and the forested lands of the central plateau. Forestry serves as the backbone of the economy but recent business initiatives have seen a diverse set of industries on the rise such as education, tourism, and clean energy.

Prior to 1965, rural areas in British Columbia did not have a uniform local government structure and relied on British Columbia (through its various Ministries) or incorporated as a local improvement district to access basic services such as community water or fire protection. In areas that did have a municipal government structure there was no effective way to coordinate the service needs of multiple jurisdictions or to resolve inter-jurisdictional issues which arose. The solution chosen by British Columbia was the creation of regional districts. Today, all of British Columbia is divided into regional districts with the exception of the most northwest part of the province, known as the Stikine region.

The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George was incorporated on March 8, 1967 and is one of twenty-eight regional districts in British Columbia. The first meeting of the Regional District Board of Directors took place on March 30, 1967 at which time Councillor P. Klotz from the District of Mackenzie was elected Chairman.
