Côte-Nord (French for "Northern Shore", area 247,627.06 km², or 95,609.34 sq mi) is the second largest administrative region by land area in Quebec, Canada, after Nord-du-Québec. It covers much of the northern shore of the Saint Lawrence River estuary and the Gulf of Saint Lawrence past Tadoussac.

While the western half of the region is in the same time zone as the rest of Quebec, the eastern half, including most of Anticosti Island, is in the Atlantic Time Zone.

Population

As of the 2001 census, the population amounted to 97,766, slightly more than 1% of the province's population, spread across 25 municipalities. The towns of Baie-Comeau and Sept-Îles combined amount to a little more than half of the population of the region.

Geography and economy

Barrage Daniel-Johnson, a hydroelectric dam on the Manicouagan River.

Côte-Nord was created as an administrative region in 1966. Important landmarks of Côte-Nord include Anticosti Island, the Mingan Archipelago, and the Manicouagan Reservoir.

A territorial dispute between Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador concerning the border between Côte-Nord and Labrador has existed since 1927.

The region's economy is based on mining (mostly iron), lumbering, aluminium production, and tourism. Côte-Nord's fourteen hydroelectric dams, notably the Manicouagan-Outardes complex, supply Hydro-Québec with over 10,500 megawatts of power.
