The Peace River Regional District (PRRD) was established in when the lands formerly included in the Peace River-Liard Regional District were divided into two regional districts. The PRRD encompasses approximately twelve million hectares (, square kilometers), includes serves a population of 58, that resides in seven incorporated.

The river, named for Peace Point, Alta., where the Cree and Beaver Indians settled their territorial dispute, became an important fur-trade route after it was explored by Sir Alexander Mackenzie (–93). Farming, the valley’s economic mainstay during the early decades of the 20th century, is now supplemented by lumber, coal, petroleum, and natural gas.
