Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan is a municipality in the Côte-Nord region of the province of Quebec in Canada.The descriptive name Longue-Pointe (French for "Long Point") refers to a long spit of sand west of the village that has had various names through the centuries: first called Longue Pointe on a map of 1735, followed by the English form of Long Point in the late 17th and early 18th century, then Mingan Point on the map of Captain Carver (1776). James Cook and Placide Vigneau called it Pointe de Mingan (1784) and Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan (1857) respectively.Around 1880, the first settlers arrived, mostly from Paspébiac, themselves descendants of Acadians. In 1885, the post office opened.The municipality was officially created in 1966 as Longue-Pointe, but renamed to Longue-Pointe-de-Mingan on April 5, 1997.
