Charlesbourg (Winter 2009 population 57) is a township in Gravenhurst Region in the Imaginary Lands of Nicholas. Charlesbourg is located west of Puffleton, within the boundaries of Sussex Census Metropolitan Area. The township is ranked 38th biggest in terms of population out of 41 municipalities in the region. It is a member municipality of the French Cultural Hub.


Charlesbourg was formerly an Aboriginal settlement. The Aboriginals settled in the delta at Lake Charlesbourg and Escarpment River. At one point, this settlement was a major city in the Aboriginal nation. The area once lived more than 93,000 people, as recorded by the European newcomers. However, many Aboriginals retreat to the north (to the Indian reserve in Concord County, namely Saint-Charles-sur-l'Escarpement, where current population is still over 60,000) or move to other urban areas as foreigners come to settle in the nowadays Gravenhurst Region.

Charlesbourg was originally set up as a trade post for convenient trade between the Aboriginals and the foreigners. Rail-lines and highways were also set up. Later, however, with most of the Aboriginals moving away, the fur trade post was almost abandoned. The population was 134 by the end of 2008, and dropped to 57 by the end of 2009.
