Nominingue is a small village and municipality located 200 kilometres (120 mi) north of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, in the Laurentian Mountains. It was formerly called Lac-Nominingue, but changed name on September 16, 2000.
Nominingue is located along Route 117, between Mont-Laurier and Rivière-Rouge, and is near the International Airport of Rivière-Rouge/Mont-Tremblant.
It is surrounded by dozens of lakes, including Petit and Grand Lac Nominingue, Lac des Grandes Baies, and Lac Sainte-Marie, as well as a forest. It is near Papineau-Labelle Wildlife Reserve and Rouge-Matawin Wildlife Reserve. The village was established in the late 1880s by pioneers sent by Curé Labelle to develop this mountainous and wild region. It was once the last station of the famous "P'tit train du Nord" (Little train of the North). Golf, biking, fishing and hunting are among the favourite outdoor activities. The former Canadian Pacific Railway station in Nominingue is now a small museum and rest stop for cyclists.
