Nedelec

The municipality of Nedelec is situated in the administrative area of Abitibi-Temiscamingue.

The village is located in the Temiscamingue County, and guests can see lovely agrarian landscapes and forests everywhere. Only 400 people live here. The territory is bordered to the north by Rouyn-Noranda (Rollet district), to the south by Notre-Dame-du-Nord, to the east by Guerin and to the west by the Ontario border.

The township of Nedelec was founded at the end of the 19th century, when the Colonial Lumber Company exploited the local forests. Nedelec was officially proclaimed in 1914. Its name honours Father Jean-Marie Nedelec, an Oblate missionary who evangelized the Algonquines of Temiscamingue Lake.

In 1922, a big fire burnt most of the village of Nedelec, but today the municipality has several infrastructures offering municipal services. The prevailing industries are agricultural.

There are several site of interest for vacationers here, such as Urban Trail interpretation Center of Nature, the Ecological Trail of Temiscamingue and the Gestion Bio-Plex Company, a historical house and site.

Drivers can reach the municipality by the Trans-Canada Highway 101.
