Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Macamic is a ville in northwestern Quebec, Canada, in the Abitibi-Ouest Regional County Municipality. It covers 191.95 km and had a population of 2,838 in the Canada 2006 Census.In addition to Macamic itself, the town's territory also includes the community of Colombourg.Colonization began at the time when the National Transcontinental Railway running through the Abitibi region was completed. The first pioneers, arriving circa 1913, were originally from Saint-Ignace-du-Lac, Pierreville, Stanfold, Nicolet, and Shawinigan. They settled south of Lake Macamic and the new settlement took the lake's name, often written also as Makamik. In the Algonquin language, the name Makamik means "limping beaver," from makis (crippled or disabled) and amik (beaver).
