James Bay Hydroelectric Facility

Robert-Bourassa Generating Facility

James Bay Hydroelectric Facility


Beyond the 49th parallel lies the James Bay Municipality, one of the largest in the world which covers an area of 350,000 square kilometers.

Gigantic and grandiose are the words that come to mind when you journey to the James Bay region and stand before these immense hydropower works, amid splendid Nordic landscapes. Hundreds of thousands of people from around the world have visited the reservoir, dams and powerhouse, emblematic of Québec expertise and ingenuity when it comes to harnessing the power of water. The complex is located not far from the community of Radisson, at the very end of the James Bay road, some 1,000 km north of Montréal as the crow flies. It is exotic in its own special way!
