James Bay & Eeyou Istchee
The ultimate great outdoors

In Québec's northern hinterlands, wide open spaces rule supreme! Barely 30,000 people live in this vast, near-virgin territory that extends for some 350,000 km2(135,000 sq. mi.) and constitutes nearly one fifth of Québec's total area. The Cree, some 14,000 of whom live in nine communities scattered along James Bay and further inland, have lived here for millennia, and call the land Istchee (Land of the People). The region is also home to a number of municipalities whose economies are based largely on natural resource exploitation
