The Nechako region's name originated from a native word, big river. This region contains thousands of long lakes, deriving its name. Although it may contain the largest land area, it has the least population of all the regions in British Columbia. The population accounts for only about 1% of British Columbia's entire population. It consists of several towns and cities such as Atlin, Burns Lake, Dease Lake, Fort St. James, Houston, Smithers, Telkwa, and Vanderhoof. The economy is mainly based on forestry, mining, agriculture and tourism.
