Dates of existence



Born on April 17, 1950, Robert Fortier lived in Nassau Lake, a community located about 50 kilometers west of Hearst, from 1952 to mid sixties. His father, Fortunat Fortier, first worked as a blacksmith for the Henry Selin Forest Products Company, which at that time operated, the largest sawmill in the region. The family first lived in the logging village commonly known as Selin. In 1952, Fortunat Fortier got a job at the Transcontinental Paper Company, also located at Nassau Lake. The family then moved into a company house. Even if the family lived at Nassau Lake for several years, they also had a house in Opasatika. During his childhood, Robert Fortier therefore witnessed the evolution of the village Opasatika and of the company Henry Selin Forest Products.

In 2016, Robert Fortier donated his collection of digital photos to Le Centre d’archives de la Grande Zone argileuse.
