ⓘ Cayamant, Quebec

Cayamant is a municipality in La Vallee-de-la-Gatineau Regional County Municipality, Quebec, Canada. The village of Lac-Cayamant is located at the north end of Lake Cayamant, west of Gracefield.

It was formerly known as the village municipality of Dorion, named after Antoine-Aime Dorion 1818-1891. It was renamed to the municipality of Cayamant in late 1988, because of the many problems created with the same name, the city of Dorion, which merged with the neighbouring Vaudreuil in 1994. The new name refers to the largest lake in its territory, Lake Cayamant. The Algonquin term Kakgama, Kandikagamaw, or Kandikagama means "porcupine". In addition, it can come from Kantuagama, which means lake with a large Bay.

The village has a primary school, Church, and several shops, restaurants and trade. Most of the population lives near the lake. The most populated street is "Rue principal" main street.
