This bronze sculpture of traveller ("voyageur") has been erected in October 1997 by the Municipality of Mattice – Val Côté with financial assistance from the Government of Canada and the Province of Ontario. Realised from an original image from Florence Dupéré, this sculpture called “The Missinaïbi Traveller” is the work of sculptor Denys Heppell of St-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec.

Mattice-Val Côté is an incorporated township in Cochrane District in Northeastern Ontario, Canada.It is located approximately 30 kilometres (19 mi) east of Hearst and 70 kilometres (43 mi) west of Kapuskasing on Ontario Highway 11.

The township was incorporated on April 18, 1975, as the United Townships of Eilber and Devitt, with Paul Zorzetto as first reeve. Its two primary population centres are Mattice and Val-Côté. Mattice is located on the Missinaibi River, a historic fur-trading route that flows into the Moose River, then into James Bay. The river is a popular destination for canoers, known for its historical significance.
