DescriptionThe riding is located in the southwest corner of Quebec, on the border with Ontario. It stretches from the Ottawa River in the south to include a small part of James Bay in the north. The riding includes the city of Rouyn-Noranda, the regional county municipalities of Abitibi-Ouest, Abitibi and Timiscaming, and part of the Municipality of Baie-James. There are several reserves, including Pikogan Indian Reserve, Timiskaming Indian Reserve No. 19 and Eagle Village First Nation-Kipawa Indian Reserve, and the Indian settlements of Hunter's Point and Winneway.

Industries include manufacturing and the service sector with some mining and some agriculture. The average family income is $52,845 and the unemployment rate is 14 per cent.

More than 94 per cent of the population cited French as their mother tongue and the total immigrant population is just over one per cent. More than 16 per cent of the population has less than a Grade 9 education.

In 2004, the riding became Abitibi-Témiscamingue, after 26 per cent of Abitibi-Baie James-Nunavik was added, an additional 24,613 people. This riding was created in 1966 from Pontiac-Témiscamingue and Villeneuve. In the 1996 redistribution, it added one per cent of Abitibi. At that point the name of the riding was changed to Rouyn-Noranda-Témiscamingue, but a private member's bill quickly changed the name back to Témiscamingue.

Population: 104,620
