Abstract: Because of the region’s topography and of its economic activities – more particularly those related to the fisheries, the distribution of the population in Gaspésie, characterized by an ethnocultural diversity, is mainly structured on the coast of the peninsula. According to existing literature, communication issues have led the Gaspesians to develop in isolation. The study of the demographic evolution of Gaspésie, the sociability relations and the migratory trajectories of the inhabitants of sampled localities from the 19th century until 1940 is observed in three sub-regions: Haute-Gaspésie, Côte-de-Gaspé and Baie-des-Chaleurs. Migratory trajectories are subjected to the peculiarities of the territory, each locality maintaining relationships with specific regions, often to the detriment of other Gaspesian sub-regions. There exists an important distance between the sub-regions, contributing to the slowness with which a regional identity was forged. Keywords: Gaspésie, migration, settlement, isolation, mobility, ethnocultural diversity
