Because water is a symbol of life, TOURISME AMOS-HARRICANA has for a long time entertained the idea of creating a site dedicated to this natural resource. Designed to provide a strong and dynamic educational and tourist value, the site reveals that our water resources are still very fragile and essential to humans and the environment.
This water-discovery route – the first of its kind in Canada – will attract environmentally responsible tourists. It is the expression of a firm, common will to bring together the peoples who live here, hence its name ANISIPI, the Anicinape word for “pure water”.
The sum of concerted efforts of the RCM of Abitibi and its 17 municipalities along with those of the Abitibiwinni Nation, ANISIPI received strong and supportive response from about 40 prominent figures and groups from various areas and interests.
