The largest population centre in the region is Selkirk. The second largest is the town of Stonewall. The region is divided into three of Statistics Canada's census divisions of Canada: Manitoba Census Divisions No. 13, No. 14, and No. 18, which together had a population of 88,854 at the 2011 census. The total land area of the region is 15,855.37 km² (6,114.85 sq mi).
