  • Témiscamingue is one of the two constituent parts of the administrative region of Abitibi-Témiscamingue. Located in the far west of Quebec, it also borders Ontario to the south, Abitibi to the north, and leads east to the Outaouais region.

  • Abitibi means "where the waters part". Indeed, part of the rivers go north while another part towards the Pacific.

  • The Témiscamingue territory takes its name from the lake which largely runs along its western slope to flow into the Ottawa River. It has 19 municipalities of which Ville-Marie is the capital, two unorganized territories which cover nearly a third of the territory as well as four indigenous communities.
