Some 400 years ago, during Champlain’s travels, the only access to the Pontiac was by the Ottawa River. Nowadays, roads from all four cardinal points lead to the Pontiac. In the South, the MRC Pontiac is delineated by the Ottawa River (a natural border between Quebec and Ontario); to the West by Abitibi-Témiscamingue, in the North by La Vérendrye natural reserve, and to the East are the MRCs Collines-de-l'Outaouais and Vallée de la Gatineau.

EW bound provincial highway running along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River and the Ottawa River in the MRC Pontiac. The 148 crosses the MRC Pontiac from Wyman (East) to l'Îsle-aux-allumettes (West), to end on Morrisson Island at the Pembroke (Ontario) border.
Secondary provincial highway connecting the Pontiac and Upper Gatineau region to the north and Ontario to the south. The highway runs from Kazabazua (Provincial Highway 105 intersection) to Highway 148 in Campbell's Bay via Danford Lake and Otter Lake. It then continues near the village of Bryson in Litchfield to end at Ontario Highway 653 near Portage-du-Fort.
Secondary provincial highway mostly NE-SW bound connecting the municipalities of Otter Lake and Portage-du-Fort, via Ladysmith and Shawville.
Rapides-des-Joachims, a municipality located at the West most point of the MRC Pontiac, is more easily accessible by Highway 17 in Ontario.
