Its geographical code was 991[citation needed] and together with Kativik, it formed the administrative région and census division (CD) of Nord-du-Québec

It was located to the east of James Bay, after which the region was named. It had a land area of 298,199.45 km² (115,135.45 sq mi, or larger than the U.S. state of Arizona) and a 2006 census population of 14,871 inhabitants. (The original 2006 census land area was reduced by about 1.74 percent and the population was reduced by 47.25 percent by the creation and departure of the Eeyou Istchee communities in 2007.) Chibougamau is the largest community in both Jamésie Territory and Nord-du-Québec.
