was formed out of portions from the unincorporated Carignan and Malhiot Townships, in the proximity of the Saint-Maurice Wildlife Reserve. However, its low population and constantly rising administrative costs led to the merger of Haute-Mauricie with La Tuque in August 1993. On March 26, 2003, Le Haut-Saint-Maurice Regional County Municipality was dissolved and all its municipalities and unorganized territories were amalgamated into the new City of La Tuque

'''La Tuque''' is a city located in north-central Quebec, Canada, on the Saint-Maurice River, between Trois-Rivières and Chambord (Chambord, Quebec). The population was 11,227 at the Canada 2011 Census, most of which live within the urban area (population centre)

While the urban area of La Tuque is relatively small, as of 2012, its entire territory is the largest municipality in Canada. It consists of almost all the entire former regional county municipality of Le Haut-Saint-Maurice (Le Haut-Saint-Maurice Regional County Municipality), and includes the settlements of Carignan, La Croche, Fitzpatrick, Oskelaneo (Oskélanéo, Quebec), Parent (Parent, Quebec), Rapide-Blanc, Rivière-aux-Rats, and Sanmaur. Enclosed by but administratively not part of the city are the three Indian Reserves of Coucoucache (Coucoucache, Quebec), Obedjiwan (Obedjiwan, Quebec), and Wemotaci (Wemotaci, Quebec).

The local economy centres on pulp and paper; the city has a pulp-milling centre as well as a major hydroelectric station. As the gateway to the upper Mauricie, La Tuque's economy also offers outdoor tourism opportunities and caters to hunting and fishing trips in its large hinterland; the city is known as the Queen of Haute-Mauricie and the ''Classique internationale de canots de la Mauricie'' canoeing race begins at La Tuque.
