Canoe Creek Band is made up of two communities, Dog Creek and Canoe Creek, but each reserve is administered by the same band office.  Both communities are located in a semi remote area southwest of Williams Lake on the east side of the Fraser River. The infamous Gang Ranch is located directly across the river from Canoe Creek IR #3.

Anyone visiting the communities for the first time will marvel at the prime agricultural land and the vastness of the Canoe Creek and Dog Creek valleys and watersheds. One would think the band was quite well off until the land owned by the local ranchers is pointed out, the major ones being the BC Cattle Company located in Canoe Creek, James Cattle in Dog Creek, Dog Creek Ranch, the Gang Ranch and the Empire Valley Ranch. Of the band’s 5,880.4 hectares, 3880 hectares is rocky hillsides. Each of the main communities of Dog Creek and Canoe Creek are situated on approximately 50 hectares of land, most of it rocky slopes and gravel on the remaining portion.
