Contents

This river crosses successively the cantons of Ventadour and Feuquières. Forestry is the main economic activity of the sector; recreational tourism activities, second. A logging camp has been established on the west bank of Ventadour Lake near a forest road.

The southern part of the Titipiti River Valley is served by route 212 which connects Obedjiwan to La Tuque and passes south of Lake Dubois. From there, the forest road R1032 (North-South direction) passes on the west side of the Ventadour River. The forest road R0212 (East-West direction) near the head lake of Titipiti River.

The surface of the Titipiti River is usually frozen from early November to mid-May, however, safe ice movement is generally from mid-November to mid-April.

Geography

The surrounding hydrographic slopes of the Titipiti River are:

The Titipiti River originates at the mouth of a Valcourt Lake (length: 0.8 kilometres (0.50 mi), altitude: 447 metres (1,467 ft)) in the Township of Ventadour, in Lac-Ashuapmushuan, Quebec (unorganized territory). Valcourt Lake and "Petit Lac Valcourt" are the only bodies of water on the Nottaway River outside Eeyou Istchee Baie-James (municipality).

The mouth of Valcourt Lake is located in Chibougamau Park at 1.2 kilometres (0.75 mi) east of the Eeyou Istchee James Bay (municipality) boundary and Le Domaine-du-Roy Regional County Municipality. Lake Valcourt is located at the foot (east side) of a mountain whose summit reaches 550 metres (1,800 ft).

Lake Valcourt is located at 1.8 kilometres (1.1 mi) northwest of Normandin Lake which is the head lake of the Normandin River, a tributary of the Ashuapmushuan River which in turn flows to the west shore of Lac Saint-Jean.

The mouth of Lake Valcourt is located at:

From the mouth of the head lake, the Titipiti River flows over 28.6 kilometres (17.8 mi) according to the following segments:

The Titipiti River flows to the bottom of a bay on the south shore of Feuquières Lake which the current flows northward on 16.2 kilometres (10.1 mi) including 7.9 kilometres (4.9 mi) crossing the western part of the lake. Note: the two parts of the lake are separated by a strait of 0.9 kilometres (0.56 mi). Then, the current flows westward on 1.4 kilometres (0.87 mi) to reach the east shore of Robert Lake which the current crosses West on 5.8 kilometres (3.6 mi) to its mouth. After crossing a final stretch of river of 2.1 kilometres (1.3 mi) across the Dead Lake, the current flows into a bay on the east shore of Gabriel Lake (Opawica River tributary) that current crosses northwest on 14.1 kilometres (8.8 mi) to take the Opawica River.

The latter, in turn, generally goes northwest, then west, then north, to its confluence with the Chibougamau River; this confluence is the source of the Waswanipi River. The course of the latter flows west and crosses successively the northern part of the Lake Waswanipi, Goéland Lake and Olga Lake (Waswanipi River, before discharging into Matagami Lake which is in turn flows into the Nottaway River, a tributary of Rupert Bay (James Bay).

The confluence of the Titipiti River with the Feuquières Lake is located at:
