Réserves fauniques Assinica et des Lacs Albanel-Mistassini-et-Waconichi

Wildlife reserve Region : Baie-James City : Chibougamau

These vast stretches of wilderness once an important fur-trading territory where natives exchanged beaver skins for firearms and food have been declared wildlife reserves to safeguard their natural beauty. They are part of a vast beaver sanctuary for the benefit of native inhabitants, especially the Cree of Mistissini. Sépaq administers and operates these wildlife reserves in cooperation with the natives living in the area. Here in the mid-North, you'll discover a breathtaking land of largely unspoiled beauty. This vast expanse is also where you'll find the largest Québec lakes. Albanel and Mistassini as well as those dotting the Assinica Wildlife Reserve are a dream come true for outdoor and sport fishing enthusiasts. You'll take home some of the finest catches you could ever imagine! Come drink in the intoxicating northern air and enjoy a vacation you won't soon forget, in these wildlife reserves where the expression "wide-open spaces" takes on a whole new meaning. ©Société des établissements de plein air du Québec
