Location of Longue Pointe

Longue Pointe (French for "Long Point") is a place located in northern Quebec, Canada. It is part of the Chisasibi First Nation Category I Land (land for exclusive use by Cree) but has no permanent population. It is used by both Cree and Inuit natives as a harbour for their fishing boats.

It is among the furthest northern point reached by road in Quebec, extending from the James Bay Road (north of the Grand River). Only the Trans-Taiga Road extends farther to the north.

Location

Longue Pointe is about 25 kilometers (16 mi) north-west from Chisasibi on James Bay, and located on the border of Quebec and Nunavut Territory.[1] It is accessible by a 48 kilometers (30 mi) gravel road from Hydro-Québec's La Grande-1 generating station, on the Grand River. The area overlooks James Bay (about 85 kilometers (53 mi) south from where it joins Hudson Bay). Early European fur traders frequented the these parts, around the start of the Hudson's Bay Company.
