DescriptionThis is a long, narrow riding in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean region of Quebec. It has Rivière Péribonka and Lac Péribonka as its western border. The Saguenay River runs through the southern part of the riding. Jonquière is in the southwest corner. It contains that part of the city of Saguenay comprised of the boroughs of Chicoutimi and La Baie and part of the regional county municipality of Le Fjord-du-Saguenay.

This riding has had a heavy manufacturing profile, followed by retail trade and other services. The average family income is $55,583 and unemployment is 12.6 per cent.

According to the 2001 census, 97.39 per cent have French as their mother tongue. The total immigrant population is less than one per cent. In the 1995 referendum, 68 per cent of voters opted for separation.

The 2004 redistribution kept all the riding and added 14 per cent of Lac-St-Jean-Saguenay in the north and 10 per cent of Jonquière in the west. This riding was established as Chicoutimi in 1925. The riding name changed to Chicoutimi-Le Fjord in 2000. The 1996 redistribution moved a small part of the riding into Jonquière.

Population: 98,739
