Parc national d'Opémican: opening in 2018 Details

News

It’s difficult to remain unmoved by such an awe-inspiring territory. Bordered on either side by Lac Témiscamingue and Lac Kipawa, Parc national d’Opémican aims to protect a sample of the Southern Laurentians natural region. Covering an area of 252.5 km2, the park will be divided into four distinct sectors: the Rivière Kipawa and the Cliffs of Lac Témiscamingue sector, the Pointe Opémican sector, the Lac White sector and the Île aux Fraises sector.

When it partially opens in 2018, Parc national d’Opémican will become a unique discovery site, characterized by the dominant presence of tall white and red pines, symbols of the junction between the territory’s deciduous and boreal areas.

This park has elements essential to the composition of a remarkable landscape: rugged and relatively low topography and many cliffs, which are found mainly along Lac Témiscamingue.

This territory, walked by aboriginal populations, travellers, loggers and the first settlers, is rich in history. It’s impossible to ignore all the historical richness of Pointe Opémican in the heart of the park, which testifies to the beginnings of logging and log driving, activities no longer practised here.

To find out more about this future must-see in the Témiscamingue area (in French only).
