It consisted initially of:

History[edit]

This riding was created in 1976 from parts of Coast Chilcotin, Fraser Valley East, Kamloops–Cariboo and Skeena ridings.

This district was eliminated as a result of redistribution in 2003. Parts of it went to Cariboo–Prince George, Kamloops–Thompson and Chilliwack–Fraser Canyon ridings.
