Gaspe, Qc, Canada

  • Gaspé is a city at the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula in the Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine region of eastern Quebec, Canada.

    In addition to Gaspé itself, the city's territory also includes the communities of Cap-aux-Os, Cap-des-Rosiers, Douglastown, Haldimand, Jersey Cove, L'Anse-à-Fugère, L'Anse-à-Valleau, L'Anse-au-Griffon, Penouille, Petit-Cap, Petite-Rivière-au-Renard, Pointe-Jaune, Rivière-au-Renard, Rivière-Morris, Sandy Beach, Saint-Majorique, Saint-Maurice-de-l'Échouerie, Wakeham, and York Centre. The city's territory occupies 1440 square kilometres and borders the sea and the St-Lawrence River for some 130 km. French is the first language learnt by most of Gaspé's population where nearly 90% of the population is French Canadian.

    Gaspé is where Jacques Cartier took possession of New France (now part of Canada) in the name of François I of France on July 24, 1534. It is also a great place to visit during winter, especially for those interested in skiing/snowboarding and snowshoeing in the Chic Choc Mountains located in the remote middle of the peninsula.
