    The Chilcotin Training Area (CTA), located north of the small community of Riske Creek and about 35 kilometres west of Williams Lake, consists of approximately 41,000 hectares of land owned by the Department of National Defence (DND). The management of forest resources on this property is the responsibility of Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) through an Order-in-Council P.C. O.I.C 1961-807.
