I'm planning a summer 2018 trip from Baie Comeau to Fermont and am in need of some detailed road map for the area. Where might I find that?
Google Map & Street View ?
if you're planning to drive route 389, you can find downloads on this site ... all in french.
This page has all of the detailed maps for Quebec regions. There is a map for the area around Baie-Comeau however it mostly covers the St. Lawrence coast. I don't know if it goes up to Fermont. You may have to buy a back road atlas for $20 that should cover the whole province in detail.
Thanks for the road map info. I'm a bit surprised that the province does not offer any free detailed maps for tourists as other provinces do. We do not anticipate having internet connection along the TLH route so many of the on line options aren't viable for what we need.
Thanks. The Back Road Atlas may be what we need.

CAA gives free maps to members. Your AAA membership would be honoured at their offices. Your local AAA may even be able to order one in for you in advance.
As noted above, the local tourism office may have free maps. Or the provincial tourism office may have them at their physical locations.Edited: 25 November 2017, 09:29
>>>"CAA gives free maps to members. Your AAA membership would be honoured at their offices. Your local AAA may even be able to order one in for you in advance."
This is true as I am a CAA member. However their maps are disappointing as they are very small as they combine many provinces into one map. They have a single map for "Atlantic provinces and Quebec" (five provinces). One side is Quebec in very small scale, the reverse all four Atlantic provinces in very small scale. Difficult to read with sections of provinces missing.
I just took my CAA/AAA "Atlantic provinces and Quebec" map out of the closet. Baie-Comeau is shown but the area north is cut off. Fermont is not on this map at all as the 389 going north of Baie-Comeau is cut off. This Quebec map only shows southern Quebec and so it would be useless to you. Even for free it is not worth the effort getting this map as you will need a better one anyway.
The AAA maps for cities are fine however the provincial maps are too small scale and often cut out sparsely populated parts of a province such as northern Quebec in this case.
I just checked my JDM Geo map of Quebec. Fermont is shown only in a very small 1 to 10 000 000 scale overview map of the province. The populated southern sections are either 1 to 1 000 000 or 1 to 500 000. This isn't the detail you are looking for.
I have the free CAA maps but still paid for separate QC, NB, NS maps at larger scale from CCC maps or JDM Geo. I even have separate maps of Quebec regions.

Actually most of those free maps are quite bad and not detailed, which is why I have bought many maps. I have the free Nova Scotia tourist map among others but still bought CCC Nova Scotia.Edited: 25 November 2017, 13:48
