The Cariboo Regional District spans the Cities and Districts of Quesnel, Williams Lake, 100 Mile House, and Wells in the Central Interior of British Columbia.

The Canada 2006 Census population was 62,190 persons living on a land area of 80,629.34 km² (31,129.9 sq mi). It covers the area from 70 Mile House to Hixon, just south of Prince George.

Twelve electoral area directors and four municipal directors govern the affairs of the Cariboo Regional District. The electoral area directors are elected by area voters, and municipal directors are appointed by their municipal council. All directors serve for a four year term.

The Cariboo Regional District provides region-wide library services, recreational facilities, and local fire protection.

The Cariboo District and 100 Mile House are featured prominently in Al Purdy's poem "The Cariboo Horses" to examine the tradition of equinity against human civilization.
