ABITIBBI, a lake and river of Ontario, Canada. The lake, in 490 N., 8o° W., is 6o m. long and studded with islands. It is shallow, and the shores in its vicinity are covered with small timber. It was formerly employed by the Hudson's Bay Company as part of a canoe route to the fur lands of the north. The construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway through this district has made it of some importance. Its outlet is Abitibbi river, a rapid stream, which after a course of 200 M. joins the Moose river, flowing into James Bay.
