British Columbia Tourism Region : Northern BC
- Mount Carl Borden named after Dr. Charles E. Borden (1905-78), Professor of German at UBC, who, taking up archaeology as a hobby in middle life, made it his life work and became the father of scientific archaeology in British Columbia.
- François Lake - According to Father Morice, the Indians called this Nitapoen (meaning 'lip lake') because of its shape.
- Due to confusion with the Indian word neto, meaning 'white man' (most white men seen here being French-Canadian voyageurs), the Indian name was mistranslated Lac des Franqais (French Lake), which became François Lake.
