The region defined

 

Airplanes being airplanes, some will fly into an area while others will travel out of it. This document focuses on the “Outaouais and Beyond,” a region that extends north to include the southern part of Abitibi-Témiscamingue, then east to take in the western part of La Mauricie, finally circling back to encompass Lanaudière and the Laurentides.

 

More specifically the boundaries can be defined as follows, clockwise from the city of Gatineau:

  • Rivière des Outaouais northwestward to Notre-Dame-du-Nord
  • Ontario border northward to the CN (old Transcontinental) railway line at La-Reine
  • CN railway line eastward to La Tuque
  • Rivière Saint-Maurice southward to Trois-Rivières
  • Rivière Saint-Laurent westward to Rivière des Mille-Îles
  • Rivière des Mille-Îles westward to Rivière des Outaouais
  • Rivière des Outaouais westward to city of Gatineau
