The NRRM spans roughly 85,000 square kilometers and encompasses nearly 10% of the land mass of British Columbia.

The Municipality is located in the northeast corner of the province and is bounded by the Yukon to the north and the Northwest Territories and Alberta to the east. The administrative centre of Fort Nelson is home to the greatest concentration of population and is also a service centre for the region's oil and gas, forestry and tourism industries. Smaller settlements within the boundaries of the Regional Municipality include Fort Nelson First Nation, Prophet River First Nation, Toad River, Muncho Lake and Coal River.

Fort Nelson is the gateway to the beautiful Northern Rockies.  The vast wilderness, expansive and mountainous terrain surround the world-famous Alaska Highway and provide an exceptional backyard for residents.
