At the heart of the Pessamit Nitassinan and a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Uapishka Station, located at the foot of the majestic Uapishka (Groulx) mountains and on the edge of the Manicouagan reservoir, offers nordicity at its most authentic and spectacular kind.
Uapishka Station is also intended to be the site of a land occupancy camp, of capacity building, and of aboriginal healing. The station has become a strong, concrete symbol of the Innu Nation’s contemporary occupation of the land, working towards skills and identity development. Operation of the station’s infrastructure has created internship and employment opportunities for the Pessamit Innu, which is why the station has set a cultural parity goal in human resources.
The station is also a direct response to the Uapishka Biodiversity Reserve Management Plan. The reserve is a protected area managed, in cooperation with the community, by the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change (MSDEFACC).
As such, the station has created 4 development components in order to meet the plan and its promoters’ aspirations.
Protected areas and the sector’s environmental characteristics, Native occupation, the Uapishka (Groulx) mountains, the Manicouagan astrobleme, hydroelectric reservoirs, etc. make this territory ideal to fuel these components.
Uapishka is accessible by Route 389 (336km) from Baie-Comeau. The trip lasts 4 hours.
