Jonquière, Quebec

Jonquière was a city on the Saguenay River in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec, Canada, near Chicoutimi. In 2002, Jonquière became an arrondissement, or borough, of the mega-city Ville de Saguenay.

Jonquière itself was the result of the agglomeration of three cities: Kénogami, Jonquière and Arvida.

Much of Jonquière's development owed its strength to the Price family who ran a pulp and paper[?] factory in Kénogami. Today that pulp and paper factory is owned by Abitibi-Consolidated. Arvida is the home of an aluminum plant owned by ALCAN.
