Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Overview

Abitibi-Témiscamingue is where we chose to live. It’s immediately to the east of Ontario, between the 47th and 49th parallel, not entirely north of Montreal, as some people like to say, but rather west of it. Abitibi-Témiscamingue is not a place where we happened to pass through. It is the place where we decided to live, to wake up every morning under endless skies. Some live here because it’s their natal home and have never felt the need to move somewhere else, some because they have never felt better elsewhere, or others because they came here and wanted to stay. There are about 147,000 of us sharing 65,000 km2 of land. We have space, open air and dense forests, but we also have vibrant cities where culture bursts with creativity.

Abitibi-Témiscamingue Overview – Profile of the region

Lac Kipawa

It is a territory the Anicinabek (Algonquins) have known and travelled, from one lake to another, from one forest to another, for millennia. It is a land that our grandparents and great grandparents have cleared to build cities and villages barely 100 years old. It is a region that we continue to develop, together, through initiatives where solidarity is as omnipresent as in the early days.

Abitibi-Témiscamingue is a land of 22,000 lakes and rivers, sometimes immense and deep, that abound in various fish species. It is an unspoiled landscape shaped by glaciers that caused rare geological formations, such as eskers that filter the purest water on earth. It is home to rich farmlands grubbed, plowed and sowed with bare hands to transform the fruits of the earth into great tasting products. It is a mineral-rich ground we extract from as deep as 6,000 feet (1830 metres) below the surface.

Parc national d'Aiguebelle

Abitibi-Témiscamingue is the combination of two geographical regions: Témiscamingue, where agriculture gave rise to its development and fields provide a wide variety of delicious food products; and Abitibi, a land of mineral resources and thick forests. We are warm, friendly and passionate people. We do not build up unnecessary walls between us, because whether rich or poor, born here or elsewhere, we choose to live together in harmony. We will talk to you as a friend, and will tell you incredible stories about us. Culture is everyday more present, with new festivals intented to make audiences laugh, dance and create. Our eyes reflect our pride in what we have built through the years but also our determination to sustain it. Achieved with hard work and artwork, adorned with flowers and colours, our pride is as deep as our lakes and our creativity as immense as our skies.

Cité de l'Or

We look forward to your visit to AbitibiTémiscamingue to brighten your life with contagious smiles and show you what made and still makes us want to stay here, today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.

When the first European explorers set foot on that land out there, where the waters divide (Abitibi), where a deep lake lies (Témiscamingue), the Anicinabek had been there several thousands of years. The Temiskaming and the Abitibi people used to get together, sharing beliefs, knowledge of medicinal plants and secrets of hunting techniques and winter survival skills. They saw French Canadians establishing themselves on that land, helped them brave winter’s cold and fight illnesses, and guided them through the region’s dense pristine forests. Through mutual influence and cultural blending, the French Canadians and the Anicinabek have become imbued with each other’s way of life, thus resulting in the emergence of the Abitibi and Témiscamingue identity.

Pikogan Pow-Wow

English-speaking, are in Témiscamingue: Kebaowek (Kipawa), Long Point (Winneway), Timiskaming and Wolf Lake (Hunter’s Point). Val-d’Or is the home of many Aboriginals and is known nationally for the leadership shown by the Val-d’Or Native Friendship Centre and University First Peoples Pavilion. The Anicinabek are actively involved in reforestation, trapping and arts and crafts, and many of them still carry out fishing and hunting activities. Some families continue the practice of nomadism similar to their ancestors' way of life. The Anicinabek are proud of their identity and heritage; they speak their language on the community radio station and regularly organize traditional activities bringing together the elders and the youth in every community. The Anicinabek invite you to learn about their cultural heritage through the visit of the Val-d’Or Native Friendship Centre, or with the participation in the National Aboriginal Day celebrations held on June 21st in several communities. Enjoy the Pow-Wow summertime activities, or take part in a true Aboriginal experience! [see p. 116]

Pausing for a moment of silence, drawn to the beautiful stained-glass windows of a magnificent RomanByzantine cathedral. Immersing into the boreal forest to observe wildlife in their natural environment. Letting people tell their stories and turn their dreams into audacious projects. Watching them, utterly fascinated, create wealth with their hands. Getting together to celebrate life and enjoy activities on the Harricana River.

Kipawa

Parc national d’Opémican

Established in 1985, Kipawa is named after the Lake Kipawa, which harbors some 100 islands and deep bays. This natural gem of more than 300 km2 in size is known as one of the ten most beautiful lakes in Quebec, thanks to the quality of water and fishing. There is a boat launch at the entrance of the village. Kipawa is the gateway to the ZEC Restigo and Zec Kipawa. The municipality co-exists harmoniously with the Anicinabek community of Kebaowek First Nation, who hosts the annual Kipawa Countryfest in August. Fall colours are magnificent in Kipawa and many hunters travel here for moose hunting. In the winter, snowmobilers, cross-country skiers and snowshoers come here to enjoy the abundance of snow.

Because the architecture and furniture have preserved their authenticity, it provides privileged access to the history, lifestyle, and culture of the early 20th century [ad. p.78]

The Témiscaming station was built in 1927 by the Canadian Pacific. A considerable amount for the time was spent on its construction. In fact, approximately $ 30,000 was invested. It is therefore an ambitious project, both in terms of the size of the building and the construction techniques and materials chosen: a brick masonry structure, concrete floors and exterior cladding in brick and stone. The Georgian style of the station's architecture makes it unique in Canada. [ads p.76 and 78]

Travelling in Québec – General Information

Travelling in Québec Bars, Casinos and Purchasing Alcohol You must be at least 18 years old to enter bars, pubs, nightclubs and casinos, as well as to purchase or consume alcohol (be prepared to show your ID if asked). Wines and spirits are sold through the Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ), the provincial liquor board. Beer is available at grocery and convenience stores, which also stock a limited selection of wines.

Currency Exchange There are numerous exchange offices in Québec’s main urban centres. Airports also offer exchange services. Some businesses accept American money, but tend to offer a less competitive rate than the exchange offices.

This Law introduces a zero-tolerance principle when it comes to drugs and driving, by prohibiting anyone from driving a vehicle if there is a detectable presence of cannabis or any other drug in that person’s saliva. Offenders are subject to an immediate 90-day suspension of their driver’s licence. The new legislation also includes other measures, such as the prohibition from consuming drugs (cannabis or any other drug) in a road vehicle, on an off-road vehicle or on a bicycle.

Winter tires From December 1st to March 15, all taxis and passenger vehicles registered in Québec must be equipped with winter tires. This requirement also applies to rental passenger vehicles in Québec.

Driving in Québec

Road conditions

Since Canada uses the metric system, speed limits and distances are posted in kilometres per hour (km/h) and gasoline is sold by the litre (l). It is illegal to transport or use radar detectors in Québec.

For information on road conditions or other aspects of trip-planning, call 511 or 1 888 355-0511, or visit quebec511.info.

Cell phones Using a cell phone is prohibited while driving.

General Information – Travelling in Québec

Tourist signage In Québec, tourist regions and directions to services, attractions and activities are indicated by blue road signs. For more information, visit panneaubleu.com and tourisme.gouv.qc.ca/signalisation (in French only).

Village-relais accredited services If you feel like taking a break or require assistance while on the road, look for the Village-relais signs. These point to villages that, together with local businesses, offer a range of accredited services and a safe and pleasant place to stop. villages-relais.qc.ca

Voltage In Québec, the standard voltage is 110 volts/60 cycles, as it is throughout North America. Since the outlets cannot accommodate European plugs, you will need to bring or buy an adaptor.

The legal currency in Québec is the Canadian dollar (CAD), which is divided into 100 cents. Bank notes are available in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollars, and coins in denominations of 5, 10 and 25 cents as well as 1 and 2 dollars. Bank cards and major credit cards are also accepted almost everywhere.

Tipping Tipping is customary in restaurants, bars and taxis. The amount, which is not included in the bill, is generally equivalent to 15% of the total bill before taxes. For quick tip calculations, Québecers normally add up both taxes. Tipping bellhops or porters is at your discretion (generally, $1 per bag).

Taxes Québec has two taxes : the 5% federal goods and services tax (GST), and the 9.975% Québec sales tax (QST). An accommodation tax of 3.5% of the room price per night also applies in our region.
