    Sague­nay was formed on Feb­ru­ary 18, 2002, by amal­ga­mat­ing the cities of Chicoutimi, Jon­quière, La Baie and Lat­errière, along with the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of Lac-Kénogami and Ship­shaw and part of the town­ship of Trem­blay.

    Sague­nay is lo­cated in a de­pres­sion in the Cana­dian shield called the Sague­nay Graben, which has a some­what more tem­per­ate cli­mate than the sur­round­ing re­gion. This has en­cour­aged agri­cul­ture and human set­tle­ment to take place. The rel­a­tively small and con­cen­trated Lac St-Jean area where the city is lo­cated can be de­scribed as an iso­lated "oasis" in the mid­dle of the vast re­mote wilder­ness of North­ern Que­bec. Few roads con­nect with the area from the south and east, and only one road con­nects from the north­west. No paved roads go north from the area into the wilder­ness; the last paved roads to the north end just a short dis­tance from the city, and still within the Lac St-Jean area. There are no human set­tle­ments due north of Sague­nay all the way to the Cana­dian Arc­tic is­lands, ex­cept for a few iso­lated Cree and Inuit vil­lages. How­ever, the re­mote, paved Route 167/113 heads north­west to the in­te­rior town of Chi­bouga­mau, pro­vid­ing a...
