Saguenay

Ville de Saguenay is a city in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec, Canada, on the Saguenay River, about 200 km north of Quebec City. Saguenay's economy is mainly based on the primary transformation of natural resources, including paper and aluminum. The city is also home to several hydro-electric power plants, notably the 800 MW plant at Shipshaw.

Saguenay is situated in a depression in the Canadian shield with a somewhat more temperate climate than the surrounding region, allowing agriculture and human settlement to take place. The relatively small and concentrated Lac St-Jean area resembles an isolated "oasis" in the middle of the vast remote wilderness of Northern Quebec. Few roads connect with the area from the south and east, and only one road connects from the northwest. No roads go north from the area into the wilderness.
