Oujé-Bougoumou is a United Nations award-winning community of 900 Crees, located near Chibougamau in northern Quebec. Built in the 1990’s, and guided by the eminent First Nations architect Douglas Cardinal, Oujé-Bougoumou was created from the vision of Elders in the latter part of the last century to be reunited once again as a community after decades of dispersal and forced relocations.

The community offers a range of services, including Band and Council offices, a health care centre, Waahpitiewewan Elementary School, the Capississit Lodge, a well-stocked dépanneur, a cultural village, a competitive hockey arena and more.
