Rouyn-noranda The Essential
Located in the heart of the Abitibi region astride the most mineral-rich portion of the Cadillac Fault, Rouyn-Noranda is the capital of the Abitibi, a relatively undeveloped region of forest, rocks, lakes and waterways. The capital of copper mining also boasts an international film festival and a thriving artistic community. Lovely parks and flower-decked gardens counteract the visual impact of the mining industry.
