Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Les Escoumins is a municipality in La Haute-C te-Nord Regional County Municipality in the C te-Nord region of Quebec. It is located on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River.Its economy is mostly based on the service sectors, especially education, health, and tourism. It is accessible via Route 138; a ferry service runs between Les Escoumins and Trois-Pistoles.Its name has traditionally been recognized to come from the Montagnais iskomin, meaning "where there are many seeds" or "there are fruits or seeds," in turn from the roots isko or ishko ("as far as this/that") and min (red seeds, or wild berries in general). According to more recent theory, it could also be a variation of the Mi'kmaq term eskumunaak, meaning "lookout place." In addition, other sources say that the place is named Essipit in Montagnais, meaning "river of shells."show more
