Nemaska (Nemiscau)

Nemaska (also referred to as Nemiscau)  - where the fish abound - is the smallest Cree community of the region. It lies 10 km north off the North Road (Km 300) on the western shores of Champion lake. The James Bay Road is 117 km away to the west.

It has a population of about 300. Gasoline, diesel, restaurant, supplies (store) and lodging are available here. (819) 673-2512.

In 1970, the closing of the last HBC trading post led to the dispersal of its population towards neighbouring communities. Seven years later, the former residents re-established the community. Today, Nemaska is a modern village, accessible by the North Road, and an important administrative centre housing, among others, the offices of the Grand Council of the Eeyou Astchee Crees and the Regional Cree Administration.
