The name New Caledonia was given to this area by Simon Fraser when he was at Fort St. James in 1806 (Morice, 1978, pg. 64). It is thought that it reminded him of the landscape in Scotland described to him by his mother. Since then, the history of north-central British Columbia has been largely shaped by the development of its natural resources.
