The Cariboo Regional District owns and operates three airports throughout the region:
Airports bring many benefits to the communities around them.
The South Cariboo Regional Airport and the Anahim Airport are overseen by airport commissions appointed by the Cariboo Regional District Board. The commissions consist of local taxpayers and Electoral Area Directors, who are responsible for the general administration of the airports. These bodies recommend annual budget levels, identify maintenance and improvement needs, and make recommendations to the Board regarding the airports' operation. The Likely Airstrip does not have an airport commission.
The annual operating budget for each of the airports is collected through taxation on a local service-area basis. When large projects or improvements are required, the Cariboo Regional District may apply for funding from senior levels of government to cover costs that could not reasonably be generated through the local tax base.
