Radisson is at the end of the James Bay Highway (route de la Baie-James). Founded in 1974 to house people working on the “Project of the Century”, it is Québec’s only non-native community north of the 53rd parallel. Once the megaprojects were completed, people who loved the North stayed in the young community, ensuring its continued existence. Located in the heart of the La Grande hydroelectric complex, Radisson is the site of the largest underground hydroelectric powerhouse in the world, known as Robert-Bourassa or LG-2.
