Jonquiere in 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 merged city of Saguenay.
Jonquière was created as a result of the 1975 amalgamation of three cities: Jonquière, Kénogami, 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 aluminium plant owned by Rio Tinto Alcan.
The Rivière aux Sables runs through the centre of Jonquière. In the summer of 1996, significant damage to the city's buildings was caused by extensive flooding.
