Riding profile

riding map

Ungava is the epically large, sparsely populated riding covering the vast expanse of Northern Quebec. The district is the second-smallest in the province by population, but the biggest, by far, in area. The riding contains the communities of Chibougamau, Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Baie-James, Chapais and Matagami, as well as many Cree villages, Nordic villages, Oujé-Bougoumou, reserved Cree and Inuit lands and unorganized territories.

The boundaries changed somewhat in 2011, losing land along the Labrador border to the neighbouring electoral district of Duplessis.

Political history

The seat has gone to the PQ since its creation for the 1981 election. Michel Létourneau won here three times in a row from 1994 to 2003, and served as minister for native affairs from 2002-03.
